Lovely flower with superb colours and very good details.
Nice composition and very sharp image.
This time you share with us an economical importanted plant for my country. This plant grows up all sea sides of west-Anatolia from Adana to Istanbul. You mentionet it in Turkis as "Gebere". This is southern anatolian dialect. In the part of northern Turkey people (me too) say as "kebere". Some people prepare very a tasteful pickle from its fruit. When I was a young boy, my mother was alive, she asked me every summer, to go near beach and collect caper fruits to pickle. After she went to Paradise, we have been forgotten this taste... Your photo let me remember my dear mother and this lovly food. Thanks a lot.

I think your decision to use f/16 was brilliant because doing so you allowed us to see the whole flower in focus, in all its beauty.
Another thing I like about this photo is the warm tones; they have a very soothing effect.

This truly is a beautiful flower. You captured it perfectly and from a wonderful perspective. The lighting, colors and details are all sensational. Wonderful notes - I never knew where capers came from.

Wowww... a really Mediterranean beuty indeed Catherine. As indicated in your notes we use "Gabbar" name for it in Cyprus and its buds and cucumbers are also especially preparing with salt and vinegar (pickling) as an appetizer for our traditional table spread for drinking parties:)
Thanks for this reminding:)
Anyway, you captured this beautiful plant's flowers in delightful composition with great clarity and flawless details. Well done MF!
TFS and have a nice day!

I like this species very much, its purple color of stamens... and the taste of fruits of course. Nice snapped composition.
