Hallo Jurek,
Eine Blume, die ich gut kenne, da sie vor meinem Ferienhaus bestens gedeiht. Du hattest Glück, sie mit zwei Schwebfliegen abzulichten. Die Farbkombination Orange-Gruen ist reizvoll. Was die Darstellung betrifft, hätte ich eventuell ein wenig am oberen Rand abgeschnitten. Auch kann der Rahmen ein wenig gross erscheinen, das ist aber Geschmackssache.
Herzlichen Dank und Grüsse

This is a wonderfully oloured plant. Excellent composition with the accompanying insects. regards yiannis
