[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Corydalis (Greek korydalís "crested lark") is a genus of about 470 species of annual and perennial herbaceous plants in the fumewort family (sometimes included in the poppy family), native to the temperate Northern Hemisphere and the high mountains of tropical eastern Africa. They are most diverse in China and the Himalayas, with at least 357 species in China.

Corydalis species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species (butterflies), especially of the genus Mnemosyne.

Corydalis cava and some other tuberous species contain the alkaloid bulbocapnine, which is occasionally used in medicine.

Hallo Jurek,
Wir waren Nachbarn gestern! Dieses Bild der feinen Corydalis gefällt mir sehr. Diese Blume wächst auch in der Nähe meines Hauses aber ich fand es nicht so einfach ein gutes Bild davon zu machen. Du hast sie mit bester Bildschärfe und in gutem Licht fotografiert. Für mich würde auch ein kleinerer Rahmen genügen, mir scheint die Blume ein wenig eingesperrt.
Ein schönes Wochenende wünscht
