Hola Ferran
Wonderful shot of this lovely Sideritis ilicifolia.
Great sharp details and colors are beautiful.
I like the blurred BG.

Hola Ferran,
Sideritis ilicifolia is indeed a very interesting plant - over 6,000 entries in Google relating to medicinal uses!

The perfect focus presents many details, and your "trademark" background enhances the delicate colours of the flowers.

It is such a pleasure to see again your work in TrekNature.

Unfortunately - it is now I with timing problems - we are going to move in the near future...

Have a nice week-end
Warm Wishes

Hola ferran,
això de poder veure fotos del teu poble és interesant i més d'una persona que publica de tot el mon. L'altre dia vaig passar per Flix i vaig dinar al rest. de l'Ebre; no sé si et coneixen.
Crec que la tinc vista aquesta petita meravella.
Abraçada: J. Ignasi.
