[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Orchis simia from Orchidaceae family. It looks a little bit pornographic but this the nature :)

I took it near Bursa, nearby a road.

"A beautiful spring-flowering orchid which is quite unusual because the flowers open in sequence, from those at the top down to those at the bottom. The hood on the flower is pale pink, often with attractive red streaks, and is spotted or veined red inside. But the best reason for growing this is the bizarre, animated, monkey-like growth, with red 'hands' and 'feet' which poke out of the hood making it a big hit with children. It's best grown in a frost-free greenhouse where it likes bright light and moderate watering over summer, but it needs to be kept dry while dormant."

harikulade bir yakın çekim, elinize sağlık Fevzi Bey.
workshoptakide çok çok güzel olmuş.
iyi geceler, selamlar.

not: çok sayıda makro objektifiniz var; özellikle kelebek gibi böceklerin çekiminde hangisini tavsiye edersiniz?

Fevzi Bey,
Öylesine ilginç bir orkide ki ne yorum yazacağını şaşırtıyor insana, fotoğrafın kalitesini konuşmaya luzum yok tam bir usta işi.
Ellerinize sağlık...

An expertly capture of the tiny orchid in fine exposure and sharp focus against its "brothers" which gradually become OOF as the distance between them increases. A beautiful vertical composition indeed Fevzi, TFS it my friend.

Bonjour Fevzi,
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.

merhaba hocam...
harika bir macro, ortada bir insan figürü görüyorum...güzel bir çekim...selamlar

Splendid capture Fevzi! Very nice details and colours. A well composed photo.
And funny too... This Orchis simia seems to be the satyric version of Orchis militaris :) We can even see 2 eyes under the hood and its "arms" saying hello... And I will not speak about another part of "his" anatomy (could be censored)! Thanks to show me this beauty I missed last year,
İyi geceler arkadaşım,
