Weigela (Vaigelia)

Kingdom: Plantae
Division: Magnoliophyta
Class: Magnoliopsida
Order: Dipsacales
Family: Caprifoliaceae
Genus: Weigala

Weigela is a small genus of about 10 species of deciduous shrubs in the family Caprifoliaceae, growing to 1-5 m tall. All are natives of eastern Asia.
The leaves are 5-15 cm long, ovate-oblong with an acuminate tip, and with a serrated margin. The flowers are 2-4 cm long, with a five-lobed white, pink, or red (rarely yellow) corolla, produced in small corymbs of several together in early summer. The fruit is a dry capsule containing numerous small winged seeds.
Weigela species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Brown-tail.
Several of the species are very popular ornamental shrubs in gardens, although species have been mostly superseded by hybrids (crosses between W.florida and other Asiatic species).

Good simple image...the way I like it.
Flowers have their sharpness.

Framing is neutral..could even be more neutral.

Bonsoir Milos,
Très belle image de ces fleurs de wegelia ! La composition est parfaite autant que la netteté. Le grain commence cependant à apparaître mais est tout à fait supportable. Le seul problème sur ce site c'est qu'il s'agit d'une fleur cultivée et dans ce cas tu risques de ne plus retrouver ce post... J'ai eu deux expériences de ce type. Pour ma part, merci d'avoir présenté cette belle vue.

Bonita composición con intensos colores, agradable POV y buen foco, logrando además un fondo difuso.
Buen control de la luz, usando una baja velocidad para no producir sobre exposición.
Adecuado encuadre e interesante nota.
Saludos... Ricardo

Hello Milos,
beautyful photo and a wonderful composition. Love the way you used the natural light and the DOF is excellent. Very nice POV and sharpness. The frame does complement your wonderful image.

Cela fait plaisir de voir des fleurs alors que l'on courre vers l'hiver.
Bonne journée.

Hello Milos,
This is a very nice capture of those little beauties. I like this POV and details. Colors, DOF and composition are very good too, along with this beautiful BG. My only nit is the noise seen but it is something minor. I think that Laurent's WS is quite good. TFS,
PS, thanks a lot for your nice comment on my 100th picture, which was appreciated :)

Salut Milos,
beautiful capture of these flowers with good details as much on the flowers that on the sheets. It is true that there is a little noise but it does not obstruct much.
Thank you,
