Hallo Amal
I am a bit scarce around the site at the moment, please pardon my short note. For me this is a 3 in 1 special. The lovely lilac coloured flowers, the unopened blossoms and the tiny insect in the middle of the frame. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Bonjour Amal,
La profondeur de champ n'est pas optimale et l'éclairage un peu trop violent, mais les sujets sont relativement bien valorisés.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
