Bonjour Philippe,
D'abord un tout grand merci de ton passage dans ma galerie. Avec toujours des remarques judicieuses et intéressantes.
Quant à ton image elle m'interpelle par le magnifique contraste vert et blanc et aussi parce qu'il me semble avoir déjà vu une plante assez semblable, probablement dans un jardin botanique. Comme je ne suis pas botaniste, je ne puis aider. Comme d'habitude une image bien présentée avec un cadrage idéal et une netteté excellente.
Bonne fin de semaine
