[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This plant is now in every roadside not devastated by herbicides. It's really a eye-catching plant because it's very high and the others plant are nearly died by sun, hot and dry. The flower I show is 20 cm diameter and it is upside down because a machine damaged it, but it's so strong that it's fresh and live.
I like a lot the structure that make the whole flower to be contained in one plane. The stems have the curvature and the lenght exact to make it possible. That is great to me. Nature always surpass us making flexible and great strucutures.
Enjoy it!
José M.

Same flower seen from above.

Wild carrot, or Queen Anne's lace (Daucus carota) is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae, native to temperate regions of Europe and southwest Asia; domesticated carrots are cultivars of this species as well.

It is a biennial plant growing up to 1 m tall, bearing an umbel of bright white flowers that turn into a "birds's nest" seed case after blooming. Very similar in appearance to the deadly poison hemlock, it is distinguished by a mix of bi-pinnate and tri-pinnate leaves, fine hairs on its stems and leaves, a root that smells like carrots, and occasionally a single dark red flower in its center.

Hello Jose,
I love the POV you choose. I never thought about photographing this plant from underneath, but I must say this is very nice. Very good details, showing the structur of this plant. Colors, sharpness and light is also very nice.

Buenas Jose, una bonita perspectiva de la foto, muy original, con gran definición y profundidad de campo. (me voy a aprender la terminología que me explicaste y a la próxima te las pongo. ;-). Me tienes que explicar como va lo de los puntos, que también estoy liado. Un saludo,

Fabulous point of view, José!
This is a very unusual, very impressive and exciting presentation of that majestical collection of blossoms.
You spread the fascination of photogaphing flowers - I feel invited to pay more attention to flowers than to butterflies in my future approaches when seeing your delightful series of flowering plants!
With thanks, and best regards,

Salut José
C'es un superbe de macro ue cette prise de vue,les couleurs et les détails sont très bien réussis,très bien pensée cette composition avec la fleur inversée.
Bravo et merci....JP

Bonita e inusual toma. Me gusta mirar tus fotos y leer las notas, me estoy enterando de los que son muchas de las fotos silvestres que veo, y me parece muy instructivo.
Fui a ver la siguiente foto a ver si tenias esta desde arriba, pero ya veo que se hace de rogar. Me consta que la luz es dificil con esta y tenia curiosidad de como la habias resuelto, tendre que esperar :)
En esta muestras la estructura de la flor con maestria y buen detalle. Gracias Jose.
Un saludo!

What an original and interesting shot. The composition is nice because of the good point of view. Well seen and well done. Congratulations Jose and thanks for sharing.

These are growing everywhere here right now too. I love this underneath perspective you've achieved. Great light and focus, the color is very nice as well, I love this "below" shot very much, well done.

Hola Jose,
Another interesting plant-structure from you - you sure have an eye for them!
The plant looks fantastic - these tiny branches - branching twice are truly beautiful

Hola Jose.
Vaya foto, impecable nitidez, la composicion es bellisima, preciosos tonos y colores, finisimos detalles, buenos contrastes, y la flor es preciosa, la veo y me recuerda esos finos manteles y centros de mesa que tejia mi abuela.


PD, A que hora del dia tomaste la foto?.

managed to miss May and most of June it seems becuase of my work collegue being off sick - still is, so I apologise for the lateness of the critique....

great shot there - the lighting is excellent and the angle is great, you have shown the structure of the plant very well and an insect in it as well.



Hola José,
Maravillosa foto de esta umbelífera, no siempre salen tan bien hechas esta clase de fotos, en especial las de plantas y lo haces muy bien.
Muy bueno el punto de vista, nitidez y detalles.

Hi Jose.
Once more many thanks.
I like these flowers so much. They (or similar plants) are widespread in our places. However I have not any picture. May be I have not such imagination. You have prsented it with great taste. Amazing composition and POV. Great impressive dark BG and excellent sharpness/details of the flowers. Bravo and best wishes.
