Hi Nirmal,
You teach me everyday and thanks a lot for all the identification of such common flowers and plants. Good shot with nice colours and details. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

A fine looking herbaceous plant captured in great detail Nirmal, would like to see one with an open flower in short time.

Hello Nirmal

What a nice capture of an unusual flower for me! I have not seen before this one! It is interesting that it is also medicinal. TFS friend!
Best regards,
