Your collection of these plants/flowers keeps on amazing me at their sheer beauty, Albert.
The image is technically so outstanding the flower has taken a three-dimensional aspect in this capture.
The colours too are a delight for the eyes.
Thanks for sharing this masterpiece.

Bonjour Albert,
Je viens de lire que cela fait 44 ans que tu es marié. Bravo! Moi, j'en suis exactement à la moitié.
Encore une fois grand plaisir de voir une fleur tout spéciale de ta collection. Celle-ci pourrait donner des idées à un couturier (mode zebrina).
Une bonne fin de semaine

Buena luz y bien captadas las texturas Albert,


Another fantastic succullent Albert.
Simply amazing!
Great work!

Bonjour Albert,

Hello Albert,
Fantastic photo in very beautiful clear colours and excellent sharpness. I like the POV and composition very much. Beautiful contrasting BG.

Hi Albert.
This shot is so wonderful as others. I like very attractive colouration of the flower and its isolation from BG. Once more DOF is great and gives an opportunity to show all details of the flower including its heart. Well done and TFS. My best wishes.

Hello Albert,
These flowers are really remarkable. I've only seen one species ever, on Mallorca. Excellent clear view of this beautifully patterned specimen. Lovely colours too and a fine composition.
TFS and kind regards, Ulla

Hi Albert

thanks for the critique on the hooded crow, I was surprised how many people said they hate it! Ha, I thought it was a quite attractive species.

This is beautiful flower from this strange family that I am totally unfamiliar with. I've tried to find some here, but no luck so far. Great colour and pattern. Good composition.
