Great round -headed garlic
the wild leek is a tall plant with narrow leaves,toothed near the stem,becoming narrower towards the tip.
The umbel is up to 8cm in diameter with a multitude of pinkish red flowers and a strong aroma of garlic.
The stamens are shorter than the tepals.
It is considered to be the cultivated leek.

Hallo Lou,
Een erg bijzondere foto. Nog nooit zo iets gezien. Je hebt er een mooie opname van gemaakt met prachtige kleuren, goede scherpte, compositie en diepte in de foto. Ook een mooie blauwe achtergrond.

O my god - I never saw so many snails together.
You had a good eye to see this, Lou.
I like the shot, wonderful light, special motive, thanks

Hi Laurens,

Interesting and very good picture. Good details in the snails and on the plant. Good composition as well.
Great capture and TFS.


Hi Laurens

MF it's just a carnival! ... impressive light in the right spot to give full details of color and beatiful definition. The setting for the exposure are a luxury! ... the sky has turned out perfect and an ideal complement to this happy picture.

Hallo Lou.

Ik heb zoiets ook wel eens gezien in Zuid Frankrijk, Overal waar je kker van die slakken, je snapt niet waar ze nog van kunnen leven.
Mooie foto die je laat zien tegen een mooie blauwe achtergrond.

Hi Laurens,
it must be hot in Epirus if the snails are climbing that high on the plants! This is an absolutely unusual and interesting picture, Laurens. Thanks for this one.
Best regards

Hi Lou
Fantastic composition...Outstanding color and subject...TFS

A beautiful Alium specimen with a lot of aestivating land snails Laurens, a real fine mixture of floral and faunal elements within a nice vertical composition. TFS indee my friend.

Originalidad en esta toma en todos los sentidos:
desde el ángulo bajo de disparo, el motivo, la composición, los colores... todo ello hace que sea una foto diferente y muy bien vista: excelente trabajo Laurens.


Hello Lou,

This is just beautiful with great colors, sharpness & fine details. Well composed with very nice POV. TFS.

Hello Lou,
Amazing to see the big amount of snails hanging on this Alium plant. I wonder what makes them gather on this plant.
Interesting picture, well framed and with good sharpness and nicely taken against the blue sky.
Well done. Thanks a lot
Kind regards

Hello Lou,
