Lathyrus clymenum
Common Enghish names: Jointed pea, Spanish vetchling.

The genus Lathyrus consists of the sweet peas and vetchlings, flowering plants in the legume family Fabaceae. There are approximately 160 species of Lathyrus; they are native to temperate areas. There are annual and perennial species which may be climbing or bushy.
The seeds of some Lathyrus species contain a toxic amino acid and if eaten in large quantities can cause lathyrism, a serious disease.

Bonjour Jose,
Etonnant comme tu as capté la lumière. Très fine et subtile ton image. La fleur, telle que tu la présentes ressemble à la coiffe d'un costume de femme.
Bonne fin de semaine et mes meilleures salutations

Hola Jose!
It's a great capture of this tiny flower - excellent placement and pleasant colours.
Have a nice weekend!
Anton

Por lo que acabo de leer en una crítica tuya, ya os estais asando por ahi abajo... puff!! aqui nuestros 22 grados se hacen tambien insoportables... a que tienes envidia :D
La iluminacion y la composicion estan impecables, yo forzaria un pelin más la mascara de enfoque ya que parece un poco suave de más, al menos en mi monitor de tubo.
Bonitos colores y elegantes formas muestra esta flor.
A ti que te gustan las flores, te voy a mandar un email con un par de canciones...
Saludos!

Hello Jose,
I love all Lathyrus flowers but this one is new to me. Beautiful back lit capture and lovely colours. Stands out so nicely against the dark background. I wonder how big the flower is?
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

This is very interesting Jose. I would not eat its seeds believe me... Those details, colors and exposure are beautiful and this is an unusual perspective. I like that! Thanks,
Claudine

Hi Jose

You have captured some lovely light coming through the petals. Lovely details, great POV and excellent DOF

A fascinating combination of colours, Jose.
The light seems to be filtering through one of the petals of the lower bluish grey part of the flower.
As usual, this is yet another fantastic composition from you.
Thanks for your kind words on my return to India.
Warm regards.

Muy buenas Jose
Una bonita y bella flor la que nos muestras con una luz igualmente buenas,
Un saludo

Hello Jose!
This is a very nice profile of Lathyrus species. I like its colours and POV. Depth of field would be a little better but I still like this picture :)
TFS and have a nice weekend!
Radomir

PS. By the way, I have one technical question: what did you do to keep different size of letters in the note?

Hello Jose,
Lovely flower, very well captured. Even though the flower appears a bit soft, it does go very well with the tender details and lovely lighting.

Hello José,
A very delicate flower with fine details!
I like the colour palette and the shine-through effect in the petals...
Well composed presentation, attractive macro work!

Hello José,
a uniquely shaped blossom that looks very thre dimensional, fresh and attractive in the intense backlight, telling of juicy, fresh green vegetation of mediteranean spring.
Thank you! With best regards,
Peter

Jose,
This may be a strange world; but it is a BEAUTIFUL world, the ONLY home we have.
Had never heard of "lathyrism" until now.
Thank you so much for the "education". In fact, had it not been for you and your ENMOROUS help and guidance I would not be enjoying this lovely hobby as much.
THANK YOU, A MILLION TIMES THANK YOU.
Great photography.
Mario your ever grateful friend at your disposition in Canada.

Hola Jose !
Que bella flor ! Me gusta su delicada color rosa, y su forma es muy linda tambien. La composicion, el punto de vista, la luz y el fondo borroso son excelentos.
Agradecidos y saludos,
Valerie.
