Paeonia broteri Boiss. & Reut.
Peony or paeony is a name for plants in the genus Paeonia, the only genus in the flowering plant family Paeoniaceae. They are native to Asia, southern Europe and western North America. Boundaries between species are not clear and estimates of the number of species range from 25 [1] to 40. [2]
Most are herbaceous perennial plants 0.5–1.5 metres tall, but some are woody shrubs up to 1.5–3 metres tall. They have compound, deeply lobed leaves, and large, often fragrant flowers, ranging from red to white or yellow, in late spring and early summer.

Abraçada.

Hi Ferran,

Beautiful macro photo!
I like this delicate color tone, especially petal. And, it's good at the contrast between the front and the background.

very sharp and very pretty in its lovely symmetrical view. I like the sharp capture where the hairs are seen in superbs detailed and rendered so fresh.
well done.
