good study of form and colour.

Hy Sascha
You are prezenting here an interesting species. Good. But your image seems to have some problems.
I've had before the same problem with the little squares, which might be due to size reduction. And the only two little flowers which are sharp, are most affected by this problem.In my oppinion I would prefer to have a small amount of flowers into focus.

Otherise...colors are good, pov the same.
Kind regards,
