[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the world's smallest gimnosperms. It grows in high altitudes, forming cushions to protect itself from the cold.
In asia, a similar plant is used to extract ephedrine, a substance similar to caffeine in that it speeds up the metabolism. However, this plant does not contain ephedrine. It does however contain a substance that helps victims of altitude sickness.

I hope you liked it, but if you didn't I'd really appreciate your comments!

CHeers!

Pablo.

Bonjour Pablo,
C'est très intéressant de découvrir une nouvelle espèce d'Ephedra. Les détails sont très bien rendus et la composition agréable.
Bienvenue sur TN.

bella foto complimenti ottima l' inquadratura bello l'esemplare
eleonora ciao ciao

Hi Again Pablo, splendid buds with great focus and lovely blurry BG, very well done, ciao Silvio

Olá Pablo,
excelente foto, do ponto de vista de composição, cores e nitidês no primeiro plano.
embora centralizada você conseguiu um otimo ângulo de tomada.
Creio que você poderia explorar um pouco mais a foto (esta ou outra, macro, que você faça), uma vez que a flor, que não sei se já está aberta, tem uma enorme semelhança com lábios de mulher.
Parabéns, prossiga.
Raimundo
