Hello Anita
The depth of field is lovely, I really like the leaf in the foreground..I really really like what i will call the stamen (i may well be wrong and please correct me!!) which looks so much like a statuesque birds head!!..I think a dove?
Great work and a superb study you are sharing.
Many thanks

very nice pic with natural light, I would crop out the lower part, since the stem and the leaf are damaged. TFS Ori

Hello Anita,
Very beautiful composition showing this lovely Ophrys endemic to Sicily. Excellent sharp details and fine colours. It looks good on the leaning stem and against the beautiful soft background.
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

This is a really good one....your focus is great, depth of field is great....really clear and well-done.

Bonjour Anita,
Superbe espèce, avec de très beaux dessins de la macule. Tu as de la chance d'avoir pu visiter les pelouses de Sicile, qui semblent héberger beaucoup de merveilles. Ta galerie est très instructive et donne des envies de voyages...
