Bonjour Albert,
Un petit diablotin, cette plante très curieuse! Image étonnante et très bien présentée. Bon cadrage et excellente netteté. La Réunion semble vraiment avoir une flore tout à fait exceptionnelle. Merci encore de nous la faire connaître.

BOnjour Ambert !
Quelle fleur étrange, et unique ! J'adore sa forme et sa texture velue, on aurait presque envie de la toucher du bout des doigts ! Les détails sont vraiment excellents, les couleurs sont magnifiques sur la fleur, et c'est avec un réel plaisir que je découvre cette espèce ! Merci ! Et félicitations pour cette belle photo !
Valérie.

Hi MF Albert,
An stunningly perfect macro capture of this beautiful silky-bristled asclepiadacean flower which it is a novelty for me from wonderful POV with an impeccable clarity, focus and composition.
TFS and cheers,
Bayram

Hallo Albert
Thanks for sharing yet another delightful flower with us. When I opened the thumbnail and saw the texture and details of this beautiful flower, it reminded me so much about the powder puff which I used to see on my grandma’s dressing table, and the thought of that brought back some wonderful memories of my early childhood. This flower is stunning. The fluffiness that surrounds it is remarkable, the maroon colour very catchy. This is indeed a beauty and I would have loved to have seen and touched it in real life. Thanks for sharing this beauty and by that also awakening some special memories. Best regards.
Anna

Hello Albert,
Another strange and fascinating Asclepiid flower well portrayed with excellent sharpness, BG and DOF with fine colours due to good use of flash.
Once again one wonders what kind of pollinators this attracts.
Thanks and best regards,
Ivan

Hello Albert,

Great photo.
Natural colours with fantastic definition.
Lighting and composition are excellent.
Good note.

Hi Albert

I seem to miss your posts when you put them up, it is not intentional, I really like your work and especially this series on these unusual plants.
Another bizarre specimen. Superb details, you must get a lot of satisfaction when they start to bloom, I know I do from my small garden. Hopefully you will post some more shots from Reunion soon.

best wishes
Chris
