Beautiful species of plant with lovely flower, the bee is a bonus. tfs.

Another interesting Catanache. Here we have C. lutea which looks a little bit like that. regards yiannis

Bonjour Ferran,
Très belle macro valorisant bien le sujet dans un cadrage qui me parait tout de même un peu trop serré sur le haut de l'image ; merci pour le partage.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

hello Ferran
very nice composition with good details and beautiful colours
thanks greeting lou

Another interesting plant Ferran! Excellent photo with fantastic colours and very good sharpness.

Preciosa, i si té l'alçada que dius la planta, ha de ser una miniatura la flor.
Ben captat el groc. Es gairbé identica en forma i textures a C. caerulea que
veig per Lleida amb molta frecuència.
Bon documen i deunidó a l'alçada en que està feta.

Bon cap de setmana Ferran: J. Ignasi.
