[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dipsacus is a genus of flowering plant in the family Dipsacaceae. The members of this genus are known as teasel or teazel or teazle. The genus includes about 15 species of tall herbaceous biennial plants (rarely short-lived perennial plants) growing to 1-2.5 m tall, native to Europe, Asia and northern Africa.
The genus name is derived from the word for thirst and refers to the cup-like formation made where sessile leaves merge at the stem. Rain water can collect in this receptacle; this may perfom the function of preventing sap-sucking insects such as aphids from climbing the stem. The leaves are lanceolate, 20-40 cm long and 3-6 cm broad, with a row of small spines on the underside of the midrib.
The seeds are an important winter food resource for some birds, notably the European Goldfinch; teasels are often grown in gardens and encouraged on nature reserves to attract them. (From Wikipedia)

Merhaba Selahattin Bey,

Güzel bir detay - doku makrosu olmuş, elinize sağlık. Ancak f/3.5 değeri pek yeterli olmamış bence. Makinanızın teknik özelliklerini bilmiyorum ama f değerini daha yüksek seçerek enstanteneyi fazla düşürmemek için de (zaten 3.5 için 1/30 gibi düşük bir değermiş) ISO yu 200 e kadar yükseltebilirdiniz. Ama yine de dikkat çekici ve güzel bir çalışma olduğunu belirtmeliyim. Tebrikler.


Nice picture and note.

I really like the compposition and the colors, but the depth of focus could be better.
