Hello Friends.
I found this plant on Uludag (Great Mountain) about 2400 m high, in a rocky place. It attrackted my attention with its fantastic soft blue colour as you see. Its flowers was lined up symmetrical. Its high about 15 cm and diameter of a flower was about 5 mm. There was a yellow coloured cylinder in the middle of the young flowers but white in the elders. I think it loves rocky and dried places. Here is a hard high mountain (alpin) clima. Lots of people say that Uludag is Turkish Alps.

This amazing coloured plants name is Myosotis from Boraginaceae Family. In English "forget-not-me", in turkish "Unutma Beni" or "Dag Minesi". I think its species must be alpestris subsp. alpestris. They "Myosotis alpestris subsp. alpestris" grow on Uludag, between 1500-2500 meter high. They loves rocky and dry places. They body lenght is about 10 - 50 cm. Some Myosotis (forget-me-not) species are very common in the west and south Anatolian region. There are about 13 Myosotis specieses and subspecieses in Turkey.

Thanks for all
Sincere greetings from Bursa, Turkey.

Selam Abi,
Çiçeğin renkleri gerçekten çok güzel. Eline sağlık. Teşekkürler.

Merhaba Fevzi Bey.
Doruklardan böylesi güzellikleri, doğal güzelliğinden hi bir şey kaybettirmeden getirip bizere sunmanız çok hoş. Ellerinize sağlık. Fotoğrafın biraz keskinliği eksik olsa da, bu güzellik o kusuru tamamen örtüyor.
Selamalar

Merhaba Fevzi Bey,
Bu çiçekler gerçektende enfes, favori rengim olan mavinin hoş bir açık tonu ile ortadaki sarı kısmıyla beraber çok hoşlar, ben henüz rastlamadım, geçenlerde bir başka makrosunu görmüştüm. Kadraj ve kompozisyon olarak çok hoş bir çalışma olmuş, eh Uludağ'da kimbilir daha ne güzellikler vardır. Tür konusunda şimdilik bir şeydiyemeyeceğim, ancak tanımlama kitabımdan bir bakacağım.
Görüşmek üzere...
Ersin

Hi Fevzi,
Really beautiful and small flowers. They have a lovely color and shape.
Best regards and enjoy with the fresh mountain temperatures!

I like this close up shot of a forget-me-not there are several species in europe all have the same basic sky blue flowers and yellow centre. Myosotis Syvatica is the one found in Britain, the nane Myosotis means mouse's ear. This is probably the field one they all like dry sites and I have them massed in my rock garden.:)

Hi Fevzi,
I like this delicate composition and these beautiful flowers! Very Good POV, DOF and a nice blurred BG. I had never seen those wild flowers before... Great notes about them. TFS,
Claudine

Bella, muy bella presentación de estas 2 imágenes con un tenue colorido, adecuado DOF y POV, aunque el F2.8 no colabore con el foco.

Hi Fevzi bey,

Myosotis are very cute flowers. Nice POV.

Legend has it that in medieval times, a knight and his lady were walking along the side of a river. He picked a posy of flowers, but because of the weight of his armour he fell into the river. As he was drowning he threw the posy to his loved one and shouted "Forget-me-not". This is a flower connected with romance and tragic fate. It was often worn by ladies as a sign of faithfulness and enduring love.
