[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fumaria officinalis (common fumitory or earth smoke) is the most common species of the genus Fumaria in Western and Central Europe.
It is an herbaceous annual plant, which grows weakly erect and scrambling, with stalks about 10 to 50 cm long. Its pink 7 to 9 mm flowers appear from April to October in the northern hemisphere. They are two lipped and spurred, with sepals running a quarter the length of the petals.[1] The fruit is an achene. It contains alkaloids, potassium salts, and tannins. It is also a major source of fumaric acid.

Bonjour Luis,
La lumière me paraît un peu trop forte, ou du moins le contraste ne me semble pas suffisant, mais les sujets sont tout de même bien valorisés sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
