[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My son and I found this lovely tiny ophrys in a short-grassed pasture near Massa Marittima in Italy. We arrived that same day after a long car-trip from Holland, so we thought that more opportunities to shoot pictures surely were to come.
But that learned us to be a misthought . . . We've never seen another example of this flower again!
Lesson: When you see a nice subject for making pictures ... DO IT NOW (and not tomorrow)!

nice Ophrys, TFS Ori

Bonjour Roël,
Intéressante macro bien éclairée dans un cadrage parfait permettant d'apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
