Hola Fevzi,
Una bella imagen bien contrastada con el fondo, buena nitidez y colores bonitos. Saludos

Hello Fevzi,
Its general appearance reminds me of orchids. However, I am no authority on plants, so don't take me seriously.
Actually I too have posted the macro of some strange, very tiny flowers today that I noticed growing as weed.
The image you have posted it truly beautiful.

Yes, it is very simple: the name of this species is Cymbalaria muralis P. Gaertner, B. Meyer et Scherb. - Kenilworth ivy - perennial species, hemicriptophyte, adventive plant from South Europe (for Romania).
from Scruphulariaceae Family.

Hello Fevzi,
I'm very fond of this plant and I have it in my garden. Most impressive macro of this little flower showing sharp details and lovely colours! Looks really good against the darker background. Brilliant composition!
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi Fevzi,
A beautiful taking of this escrofularácea, in my country is very invading, in places mainly inhabited and shady

Hi Fevzi,
I love the colors in the flower and how the OOF BG enhances them even more. Great work on the sharpness and exposure with good details in the entire flower. Did you notice the small dust spot.

Merhaba Fevzi, wonderful flower with splendid colors, great blurry BG, good composition, splendid presentation, very well done.
Ciao Silvio
