Hi Gerard,

Lovely capture of this Lathyrus. We have 23 species of L., but not this one.

The focus in the upper part is somewhat soft. Using a a large f number would have solved this problem.

Hello Gerard,

I am impressed by the reachness of color tones the flowers in your photo has. Also image is very good being sharp and showing in great details the texture of the petals.

Thank you for sharing,

nice flowers, they are also blooming now at the Jerusalem Botaniocal Gardens, TFS and greetings Ori

This one has an almost gentile softness which would make it very attractive to the feminine side...L'image est la bonne qualité. les couleurs sont divines..
