This is my 1100th post today.
I took the picture of these flowers at my native place in the Himalayas in February last year.
The spring had made its appearance a bit early that year and I shot these wild flowers growing on one side of the path I was walking on.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Ram.
It is a huge moment. 1100th post. It is unbelievable. My heartfelt congratulations and many-many thanks for your amazing pictures, comments, thoughts etc. Wonderful holiday shot with beautiful flowers and cute visitor. I like colour palette and a lot of lights too. Happy New Year and all the best to you.

Dear Ram Sir,

Congratulations on your 1100th post. Beautiful flowers and the bee trying to drink nectar is adding to the beauty of composition.

Thank you for sharing and a Merry Christmas to you.

A colourful way to brighten what is for us in the North becoming one of the worst winters in living memory. We already have 80 cm of snow and it is still snowing.
So to have such a spring as represented by this fine image of these flowers would be a dream! The hoverfly is a little bonus and congratulations on this being your 1100th posting!
Anyway Ram, I wish you and your family Season's greetings and a Happy, Healthy 2011!

Despite our differences in the past I can say, Bravo Ram for your great participation in the building of Treknature! 1100th post today is a real achievement! This image has traces of camera shake. As a result the image is soft. I am advising you to use higher shutter speed to avoid that unpleasant effect. Thanks for your warm wishes and Merry Christmas to you and your family too!

Hello Mr. Thakur
My heartiest congratulation for your 1100th post today; we want at least 11111 posts from you. Only one advice use higher shutter speed, not bad if it is 1100.TFS

Hi Ram,

My belated congratulations on this amazing milestone. I'm sorry I missed it. A very beautiful Christmas card for your 1100th post. These flowers are magnificent with fantastic colors, fine details, and a most wonderful composition. Here's to the next 1100.


Congratulations Ram for your impresive number! And all the best for 2011!

Am I wrong or this flower is not so sharp? Or did you want to focus on the insect!

Kind regards,
