Hello Friends.
Today we are celebrating a religional fest that known as Ramazan Bairam. Thus the people visit and give some gifts (for example chocolate, flower, toys for children) each other and celebrate their bairam. I thought for a while what I would post today here. And dedicate to post this beautiful flower as a "BAIRAM GIFT". :-) I hope enjoy it.

This is Lantana camara from Verbenaceae Family. This is actually native to south-east asia. It was brought to Turkey as a ornamental plant and it has been cultivated in parks and gardens. But after many years, it has got a native plant to Turkey, because its berries were dispersed by birds to wildy areas and every where was covered by this invader plant. But not everywhere of course, only mediterannean climated areas.

You can more info about this plant here

Preciosa lantana, la flor favorita de muchas mariposas para libar su néctar, como antes lo fueron de los gusanos que comieron sus hojas.
Existen de variados colores, muy vistosos.
Tu macro muy agradable y la nota bastante instructiva.
Buenas noches Fevzi.
Saludos, JL.

Selam Abi.

Hi Fevzi.
Your next lovely painted picture. Amazing lighting (especially lighting of BG), perfect and rich colour palette, excellent presentation. Very well done, my friend. and TFS. But I have noticed, that you so strongly love f-number f/5.6, that almost always use this value. Try to play with it. May be new opportunities will open.
My best regards,

  • Great

Merhaba Fevzi Bey,
Bu fotografınızı atlamışım,renkler pek favorim değil ama ama hoş bir bayram hediyesi olmuş:)Detaylar,ışık,kadraj,kompozisyon ve açıklayıcı notunuz her zamanki mükemmellikte.
Ellerinize sağlık!

Hi Dad!
What a great captured photo.
I've never seen before red and yellow colors together are fantastic like this. But I'd prefer chocolate rather than a flower for bairam as a gift.
