I am a newbie with TrekNature.
Photo of the lotus flower was taken near Macau museum, The colours are so vivid and plentiful. I love the balance between the purple and yellow. I understand why the flower is so sacred and popular in Asia

Tech: Crop and adjust levels

Bienvenue ! Cette fleur est magnifique et les deux teintes dominantes sont belles à voir !
Welcome and well done !

Nice first post to begin with Bernard, welcome.
Remember not cultivated plants or domestic animal allowed here, so if you post this, is better to talk about the wasp, and the flower is only the background. :-D
Hope to see more photos an critiques soon, thanks for you first one.

Welcome to TN.

Welcome on TN Bernard. Very nice picture of a beautiful flower. Very good dof and colours.

Bernard, Beautiful flower shot in a way that gives it a surreal touch. Especially the purple tips give it a special effect.
Greetings, Jan
