Hallo Ignasi
I am sure about everybody on Trek Nature knows by now that I just love purple, and if you did not know then you know it now. I repeat…………………..I love purple and all the shades of purple and you flower posting of today is just stunning. I have added it to my theme. I recognize shades of violet, lavender and lilac. The display of the anthers is just amazing and looks like tiny pearls with a hint of gloss here and there. I like the way you blurred out some of the flowers in the background, still leaving some colour to see the framework of the flower. Beautiful flower, with awesome detail and sharpness. I thank you kindly for sharing.
Kind regards
Anna

Ignasi, Very nice flower but I think the focus is slightly missing. Perhaps you could have used a different angle to show more important to the buds. Ganesh

Hi Ignasi,

Marvelous, lovely close-up capture of this beautiful Globularia sp. with excellent focus, colours, composition and details.

I like it Ignasi, this is very nice and the composition is superb. I love the flowers at left, bending to the left. The background is smooth and nice, lovely colours too! Thank you,

Hola Ignasi,
Hermosa flor. Me gusta el POV, los colores y la luz suave, el foco. Tal vez cortaría un poco la foto a la izquierda, porque queda muy en solitario la composición, con todo en la derecha, y la flor de la izquierda no se aprecia para nada.
Una pregunta, ¿sabrias qué usos medicinales tiene?
TFS, que tengas buen dia!

Very nice macro shot, with a great light and beautiful colours.
Best regards,
Catherine
