Hello Nirmal
What a curious and beautiful little flower! A difficult but excellent macro-shot, and a very interesting document and useful contribution to the garden of TN.
Thank you very much for it.

Very interssing flower, j'aime bien ses étamines et les couleurs vives,
bravo pour cette belle composition Nirmal,

Hello Nirmal,
an unusual blossom, well focussed, well detailed, with brilliant colours. Hard contrasts in the background might be slightly softened by postwork. Interesting dynamic composition.
With thanks, and best regards,

  • Great

hello Nirmal,
What a special little flower. I never have seen it before. I like the point of view you have chosen, giving a 3D dimension to your picture. Well seen.
Thanks and best regards

Hi Nirmal,
Fine picture giving details of leaves and flower - actually the flower is quite tiny as to go unnoticed. To the naked eye, those tiny blue 'hairs' are not visible easily at all, in reality! Once you see it on your PC - lo, they're there! You have captured well!


Hi Nirmal,
Very beautiful flower blue and foliage.
I would cropped a portion of BG that is excessive.
But is a good shot, as usual
