Bonjour Albert,
Tu reviens à tes fleurs si particulières et je vois avec étonnement que tu indiques sous le point "distribution" le Yemen. Ce n'est donc pas une fleur de la Réunion? Belle présentation décentrée et un arrière-plan sombre adéquat pour mettre en valeur la forme et la couleur de cette Huernia.
Je te souhaite une belle fin de semaine

Hello Albert,
A beautiful photo in your Asclepia series. The flower of this species id superbly shown with fine use of flash to give the contrasting dark BG, nice sharpness and colours.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hello Albert,
Another very fine view of an interesting Asclepia flower. I like its shape and beautiful colours. Well composed too.
TFS and best regards, Ulla

Hello Albert,
Very good picture, with a Hermes dark background and a flower of this exotic plant very well focused. The POV is impeccable!
That curious, here is these plants are usually in ancient gardens. I inherited, some plants in the garden of my grandmother and I have some of these ... when we want them to flourish, we put them in pots with sand and placed in a dry and avoid watering for 30 days ... later, wet thoroughly and soon flourish.
Thanks for sharing.

Wow, Albert, non seulement la photo est très réussie, mais cette fleur est magnifique et très bien rendue par le fond noir. j'ignorais que des gens faisaient pousser des plantes aussi exotiques, excepté les orchidées! Vraiment une superbe plante que tu me fais découvrir. Merci!


The wait of 5 years was worth it, Albert.
This is one of the most exotic flowers I have ever seen.
You have created this image of it with superb dexterity.
Thanks for sharing it and best regards.

Bonjour Albert,

Cette photo vue de face... on dirait un cornet de vieux tourne disque!
Ceci dit voici une belle photo montrant bien la structure en pentagone ce cette asclépiadacée!

Bonne journée


Hallo Albert
I really like the way one look so deep inside of this flower as is you are looking into a pipe and at the end it is decorated with the most beautiful patterns and markings. The colours of this beautiful and most unique flower is just gorgeous and I am sure it must have been a delight to have seen it blooming for the 1st time.
I like the left sided composition. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
