Bonjour Josep,
C'est vraiment une des orchidées européennes les plus spectaculaires ! Elle est très rare en France où elle n'est pas pollinisée : sa rencontre est toujours exceptionnelle. Ta composition est très belle, avec une parfaite restitution des couleurs de ces curieuses fleurs.

Hello Josep,
A very fine capture of the Mirror Ophrys - I remember how excited I was when I first spotted this in Spain! Personally I would prefer a vertical crop but focus is excellent on the pretty flowers showing lovely details and colours against the fine soft background.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Siempre expectaculares las O. speculum, me habría gustado mas una composición vertical, mostrando toda la espiga floral, algo mas contrastada y con un poco mas de profundidad de campo.

Hola Josep Ignasi
Gracias por esta orquídea maravillosa, tus flores son particularmente espléndidas.
El solo lugar que conocía en Francia, ha sido desherbado por pistas de pequeños coches...
Comprenderás mi furor, pero mi alegría de ver tus bellas fotos.

Bonjour Josep,
Très belle macro valorisant bien le sujet par l'appréciation de la finesse des détails et de la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
