Very eye-catching composition with soothing nature colours, Dr Ahmet.
Beauty truly lies in the eye of the beholder.
Thanks and regards.

Salut Ahmet,
Your flower pictures are as nice as your bird ones but you have to excuse my ignorance in the subject. Photography using macro lenses is also a mystery for me. I have an f/ 2.8 Sigma 150mm macro but I did not used often. I assume you have to use a tripod for this type of photos and I never used one.
Regards, Mario

Günaydin Ahmet dostum,
A fine capture of the flowers and leaves of this leguminous species of shrub. The flowers, leaves and seed pod are taken from a nice POV, set in a fine composition with good sharpness and colours.
I especially like the venation pattern of the leaves.
Cok tesekkür ederim ve eline saglik,

Yine doğal renkleri ve net görünümüyle çok güzel ve tanıtıcı bir prezentasyon Ahmed'im, ellerine sağlık dostum. Bir noktayı sormak istiyorum, biz bunu "Sinameki" olarak biliyoruz, sen farklı yazmışsın, acaba hangisi doğru?

Efectivo conjunto visualmente de atractivos y conjuntados colores.
Saludos Ahmet.
