Flower from Veronica persica. This is a very common plant from the family of Scrofulariaceae. Generally considered as an invasive noxious weed in the fields. This example was taken close from the river Le Lez, near Isensac. For you information, the flower is something like 5 millimeters diameter.

As it was a few breeze, I have choosen a sensibility Iso-800. Aperture f/22 and speed 1/125.

Lovely capture of this little Veronica.
One of most beautiful flower !

Hi Philippe

We have this one in Australia too. Another good macro with good DOf and composition. Good result from ISO 800, though you can see the noise which is common at high ISO. i have done a workshop on this one to show you how the nosie can be reduced.


Bonjour Philippe
une superbe image de cette jolie petite véronique ! tu as dû presque te couché par terre pour la prendre de ce point de vue
malgré sa petite taille et malgré le vent , tu as réussie une photo de qualité, bravo !
Passe une bonne nuit

Bonjour Philippe,
Althouigh it's a very common flower specie, I don't remember I've ever seen it here on TN. Great photo, You handled the technique really well, so the colors became quite natural. Well chosen focus also. On the negative side there's one thing: the strong background noise Chris (sandpiper2) also mentioned. Otherwise a pleasant image.
Tfs, best regards from Hungary, László

Bonjour Philippe,
Belle macro finement détaillée et délicatement colorée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Philippe, I don't see whole plant (habit) but I doubt this is V. chamaedrys, it looks for me rather like some species close to V. persica or something. Regards,
