Hi David.
I have not seen wild species of this flowers. They are very nice and you managed to show all their beauty very well. Excellent vertical composition, very good DOF and sharp image of the plant. I also like blurred BG which is so impressive too. Well done and TFS.

Shalom David,

Splendid composition of this wild flower which I have seen in Cyprus as well. Great details, sharpnes and wonderful colours. TFS. Have a nice week!


Almost looks like an Iris....Certainly from the same family? A wonderful shade of blue-violet. You do not post many images, but they all seem to be of things which you have knowledge and some association!
