O agave-dragão é uma planta muito utilizada no paisagismo, em composição com outras plantas ou em maciços. Tem folhas grossas verde-claras com superfície acinzentada. Pode emitir uma inflorescência longa e cilíndrica com muitas florezinhas. Com o tempo, surgem desta inflorescência, diversas mudinhas de novos agaves-dragão.

Deve ser plantado a pleno sol, com solo fértil e com regas regulares. O agave-dragão viceja com muito mais facilidade no calor. Combina muito bem com jardins geométricos e tropicais.

Existem ainda outras espécies de Agave como a Agave americana e a Agave angustifolia, também conhecida como “Piteira-do-Caribe”.

Hi Scharan!

I like your picture because of its simplicity. The effect created by the perspective due to the chosen point of view is superb, maybe a little larger depth of view would even accentuate it. The colours and the lighting are very good, too, and the drop adds to the value of the picture.

Kind regards

Markus

Hello Vera,

Hello Vera,
Excellent composition created with a great artistic sense. I also like the fine blue and green colors of the Agave-plant. Very nice to have included the little rain-drop on the leaf.
Excellent!
Best regards

Bonjour Vera,
Agréable macro bien composée, mais dans un cadrage un peu trop serré, sous un excellent angle de prise de vue et une belle lumière qui permettent d'apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Oi Vera

vc com frequencia faz de uma tomada quase simples, um evento fotográfico repleto de finos detalhes e uma composição bem acima do normal..
Otima imagem e rica em detalhes como a pequena quantidade de agua na folha muito bem colocada na foto..
Mas o que mais me impressiona na sua foto é certamente a iluminação do conjunto que traça linhas marcantes ao longo das folhas da agave..

abraços;

Taba
