amazing flower and fruit capture, TFS Ori

Beautiful composition of flower and seed pod.
The yellow of the flower and the blue sky complement each other perfectly.
An unusual species for us. regards yiannis

Hello Volkan,
such a lively shot with the sky as its background. The sharpness is so good and the artistic scene is very pleasant.
Very nice features of this unique flower too.
