Hello Ori,
Indeed a very beautiful sharp detailed photo. The raindrops are impressive. Excellent contrasting and clear colours. Great use of flash. Wonderful POV and composition.

Hello Ori,
Very beautiful scene indeed. The little drops add something unique to the composition, specially the drop on the bright blue speculum. Best regards,

Bonjour Ori,
C'est toujours une belle découverte... le flash a bien compensé le manque de lumière. Très belle image,

Hello Ori,
You seem to travel through Spain and you have discovered some beauties. This Ophrys is well photographed, very cute the little raindrop on the flower. I was in Ronda too in the past, but I didn't see this marvellous flower.
Best regards and a nice weekend

Hello Ori
Un grand bravo, et un grand merci. Je en la verrai pas cette année en France car elle est déjà fanée.
à bientôt

Bonjour Ori,
Agréable macro permettant d'apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
