Not sure what the correct specie is...

Hi Shir,
This is a lovely image of this flower, I have no idea which species it is either. The colours are very vibrant and the quality of the image is wonderful. Nice DOF too.

Hello Shir,
Wonderful presentation with bursting out colours.
I'm pretty sure it's a member of genus Lathyrus.
Great details and very nice composition.
Best greetings,

Hello Shir,
Wow ! Great colors ! The texture on petals is well detailled. The little insect is a nice bonus.
The "+++" : subject, vivid colors, sharpness, DOF, light & exposure...
The "-" : perhaps more space on the left side for composition...
Congratulations and TFS.
