Tasty photo ;-) Very fresh mood and colours - light greens and whites, good composition and quality. I like it!

Another great shot!
I heard that in Poland this plant is used for preparing tasty salad. I've never tried it cause this species can't be found in the place where I live.
I like the photo very much.
Well done!

Christian, what grabs my attention about your photos is their sharpness, and this one is not an exception.

Besides, once more, excellent colors, great contrast and composition.

Nice shot Christian,
Good recipe too!! nice composition, perfect exposure and great detail.
DOF is just right, as always. Another great shot Christian.
Thanks for posting

Une très belle photo lumineuse, parfaitement exposée (vous avez très bien échappé aux blancs "brulés"). Le vert est vibrant, très beau et met toute cette fleur en valeur. Excellent, Christian! Note intéressante, notamment au point de vue culinaire :-).

Hello Christian!
Very interresting post.I'd never seen such a garlic before.Wonderful,DOF,lighting and composition.TFS...:-)

Beautiful photo with good colours and details. This made me feel hungry!

Et cru en salade, c'est délicieux aussi! Bien plus raffiné que l'ail et je pense plus intéressant pour ses propriétés médicinales. Une jolie photo bien composée.
