I have made this superb flower on the Vlietlanden near Vlaardingen. This is the area of Nature Monuments. This is of the layer peat areas which have not settled. This comes because never drainage works have taken place. Photo is handheld made.

Hi Bob.
Pretty flower this nettle has, exposured with good detail and colour. Sharpness for handheld is good.
Does this nettle sting you if you touch it like out bush stingy nettle here in NZ?
Lovely image to go with your notes,

Hoi Bob,

Dat is een mooi en delicaat uitziende bloem die je daar hebt vastgelegd. Ik vind de kleuren erg mooi en het steekt mooi af tegen de achtergrond. Goeie details ook, mooi gedaan!
Bedankt en goed weekend.

Groetjes, Nel

Hello Bob

Just marking the post for now


Very beautiful flower Bob,
Nice detail, color, and exposure..Good POV too, showing the stamen and blossom's structure well :)

Hallo Bob
I have a theme with the title "My purple obsession". I have added this beautiful flower to that collection. Really a magnetic photo and flower with shades of purple ranging from violet anthers and lilac and lavender on the petals. The hair on the flower, the unopened blossoms and the maroon coloured stem adds a special touch to this photo.TFS.
Kind regards
