[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Crown Anemone (Anemone coronaria) is a Ranunculaceae, of the Anemones family. It has pink, red, blue, lavender or purple flowers, often with a white of yellowish central zone. We can find it on hillslopes and grassy fields, in Mediterranean zone, from January to April.

I know, it's a common flower in the Mediterranean, but for me it is a so beautiful flower, with a extraordinary light.
L’anémone couronnée (Anemone coronaria) est une renonculacée, de la famille des anemones. Elle a des fleurs roses, rouge, bleu, lavande ou pourpres, souvent avec une zone centrale blanche ou jaunâtre. On la retrouve sur les pente et les prairies grasses, en zone méditerranéenne, de janvier à avril.

Je sais, c'est une fleur commune en région méditerranéenne, mais pour moi c'est une fleur superbe, avec une lumière extraordinaire.

Salut Catherine,mais quelle merveille! Le rouge est parfaictement montre',des details incroyables,mes plus gros compliments pour ce grand travail photographique,bonne journee',Luciano

Bellissima composizione, ottimi POV e DOF, eccellente la scelta di una focale tele che permette di isolare il soggetto ed esaltare i dettagli limitatamente alla corolla; molto belli i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Merci pour ceux qui sont éloignés de la méditerranée ! Je ne connaissais pas cette plante, et ce rouge est vraiment vif !

Bonsoir Catherine
Je suis d'accord, c'est une fleur superbe, et elle n'est pas si commune que cela, car : 'Protégée ' en France.
Merci pour ce spécimen

Amazing composition. Great details. Superb colours.


Hi Catherine, great macro of a splendid Anemone with superb colors and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hallo Catherine
In Afrikaans we have a saying: "Hoe rooier hoe mooier" and that is most applicable here. It means the more red, the more beautiful. Very sharp and beautiful details of the precisely shaped petals and anthers. I especially like the wrinkled effect on the yellowish part of the petals. It displays well and is a lovely close-up. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day.
Kind regards
