|Sternbergia lutea (L.) Ker-Gawl. ex Spreng.|
Common names: winter daffodil,autumn daffodil, fall daffodil, lily-of-the-field, or yellow autumn crocus
Sternbergia lutea is very coomon wild plant in Crete and in Greece as well. It has a wide distribution from the Balearic Islands in the Western Mediterranean through to Tajikistan in Central Asia. It dies down to a bulb during the summer. Leaves first appear in the autumn (September to November in its native habitats), and are glossy green, up to 12 mm wide; they remain through the winter.
Deep yellow flowers appear soon after the leaves, with six tepals around 3–3.5 mm long., six yellow stamens and a style with a single stigma (see in WS).

Hi Nikos,3 fantastic pics,differents and well done! The main post is amazing,what a bright colors and what a details on the drops,one of your best post! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
beautiful capture, TFS Ori
une composition originale, j'aime bien la présence des gouttes d'eau.
No doubt, water droplets are looking nice and exposure is very good. I like close view but lack of eye catching composition here. I mean it doesn't grow much interest if you watch this picture. To make a good compositional shot you may use THIRD HAND; which essential to those who like to capture plants.
Thanks for sharing,

A beautiful image, especially this time of the year when everything is either brown or on its way out for the season. I love the water droplets and nice focus you managed to capture. Very good exposure and quite eye pleasing to view.
