The flowers yellow, are spoted of brown inside. Height : 0,4m to 1m. Bloom : June to August. Like the other digital ones, this plant is toxic and contains digitalin.
Habitat : The Digital one meets on the mountain floor, on the edge of the ways, in wood lights, rubbles or the meadows. Altitude : 400 to 2000 m.
Photo : Resized and framed in 800x600 for TN.
I have made this photo of a wild Yellow Foxglove along the way to Sambuy at about 1800m altitude. I like the rocks in background.
During the shot I didn't see the insect at the bottom, I saw the visitor only on the screen at home...

Very good shot with sharp details. I agree with you; we do capture surprises while shooting wild flowers.

Fantastic shot Taz, the colors are really nice on this one and the yellow foxglove sets very well on the nice soft background. Looks like you have a little insect visitor at the bottom of the image. :)

Hello Christian,
It's a very nice picture. The BG really looks great, flower is nice too though a bit overexposed on petals. The insect is a nice bonus. Adds some action.

Hi Cristian!
Excellent macro! supreme composition and definition of the details.
The Digitalis did not know yellow color. In the Madeira Island I know of lilac color.
Congratulations for the work.
Photographic greetings,

Good shot Christian,
Good detail, colours and sharpness.
Composition and lighting are good. Good POV and framing.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.

I've been visiting your personal website recently. Your carnival images are fantastic.

Hi Christian,
Excellent wild flower and flying insect photo.
I like your pov,colors,sharpness,focus,dof,note and frame.Well Done,Bravo:)TFS

I have never seen a yellow one, here we find them pink and white, but not yellow. As always a nice capture, and the UFO is a great bonus, it is very nice to find at home this intruders into the composition. It often happens to me with mushrooms :)
Best regards, my friend.

Hello Christian,
Beautiful details in the flowers!
Amazing colours and a most pleasant composition, I like the tilt and the diagonal direction...
Close-up work is very well done!
