Hello Christodoulos,
What a beautiful yet unusual looking perennial. Their unique shape gives the false sense that the bottom half of the petal is there, but the top half is missing. Your choice of an f/16 aperture resulted in some really great DOF.
Focus is tac sharp allowing us to see them in super fine detail. Exposure is right on the money. Great work!!

Hello Christodoulos,
A most beautiful Ajuga-species. In our surroundings they are rather blue and purple colored. Very striking yellow coloration, a color which is most difficult for photographers. You did well as usual!
Kind regards
