Hello Albert,
A specialist in Asclepiadacae is needed for the ID, but this is another fine portrait of the flower of the Huernia sp. from your collection. a facinating flower taken with excellent sharpness, colours and lighting set in an excellent composition.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hello Albert, a great close-up shot of this strange flower.

This particular Huernia has its own kind of symmetrical beauty.

Hi Albert

An strange yet beautiful addition from your collection, a most unusual family of plants.

Excellent composition, DOF, sharpness and details.


Hallo Albert
Unique and very striking. One cannot miss this flower with its strong and vivid colours. The texture and shape of the flower captured is lovely to look at. It reminds me of some type of cactus, but I might be totally wrong. It is indeed a beauty. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi MF Albert,
Nice to see you start to upload again.
An amazingly beautiful capture of this wonderful Asclepiadacean flower with an impeccable clarity, focus and composition.
TFS and cheers,

Hi Albert.
I am watching your new picture with great pleasure. Once more unknown for me and very impressive plant. Its reproduction is precise. Details and colour rendition are simply outstanding. Lights are so pleasant too. Your picture gives the best idea about this beautiful creature. My compliments and kind wishes.
P.S. It is a pity a bit that I am too busy and cannot to visit TN.
