This one is dedicated to my beloved wife Joasia :-)

Simply and beautifull - field of orange flowers which we founded during or trip to Rogow Botanic Garden near Lodz. I'm not sure about ID, but I'm sure about beauty and joy of this summer composition :-)

Please, enjoy!

I will again tell you that you get a super foto where most of us would see a boring flower.
Excellent play with DOF! Congratulations MF, for this lovely photo.
PD: I have to send you a message, I dont forget ;)

Hi Greg, I really like the simplicity of this and the echoes of the orange flower throughout the frame. Good composition and nice soft light too. Well done.

Witam :-)
Piekna fotka, bardzo sloneczna i ciepla. Niesamowicie wygladaja te pomaranczowe plamy na jasnej mlodej zieleni... ale zatesknilem za latem....

Hello Greg,
I like this nice composition, the orange spots on green are lovely. For ID my idea is "Crepis aurea"...
Congratulations my friend and TFS.

PS : in your country have you snow, here in French Alps yesterday we had 17°c for example, bad season for ski :-(

Thank you! Amazing gift this grey morning.
Fantastic colour and great simply composition.

Hi Greg,
A very colourful and attractive picture of what to me seems to be Pilosella aurantiaca, syn.: Hieracium aurantiacum, Fox-And-Cubs or Orange Hawkweed in English. They grow in clusters and can cover fairly wide areas amongst grass like yours also seems to do to judge from the glowing spots all around. Thank you very much for this picture which brightens the rest of my day, at least.

bonjour grzeg
un peu de grain sur le fond mais ces couleurs me plaisent beaucoup.
jolie composition.

Dobri Denj Grzegorz,

I am not a botanist , but can assure you that this is hawkweed, to wit the orange type (Hieracium aurantiacum). It also exists in yellow. Have your pick:
Hieracium caespitosum (field hawkweed)
Hieracium pilosella (mouse ear hawkweed)
Hieracium sabaudum (savory hawkweed)

At my place I have tried to introduce the orange , as I only had the yellow. However i seems that conditions are not optimum for the orange. I can find plenty of orange hawkweed near the Bay of Fundy... But on the SW Coast of Nova Scotia it seems to be rare or non-existant.

Please note that in agricultural cicles this is considered a noxius weed

(Hieracium aurantiacum) is beautiful just th esame, as you proved in this great shot! No wonder you dedicated this to Joanna/Joasia


It is nice to see an original composition. I love the out of focus orange flowers dotting the background. The subject itself is perfectly exposed and wonderfully sharp. Nice work.
Nice work

Hello Greg,
Beautiful summer meadow shot! I love the colours and the shape of the petals on this Hawkweed in excellent focus. Beautiful blurred flowers in the background too. Excellent composition!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Greg,

Great Photograph! The backround is what really makes this one rock! I love the composition and framing on the foreground flower. Tack sharp with perfect DOF. The vibrant colors of the OOF flowers in the backround are very beautiful.
Very Cool :)
