Pel Ferran (fjlloret)

Daphne gnidium L.
Genus : Daphne
Catalan common name : Astruc. Baladre. Matapoll. Tell. Tintorell.
Spanish common name : Matapollo. Torvisco.
General distribution : Mediterranean
Flowering time : August. September. October.
Life-forms : Nanophanerophyte.
Habitat : Pine woodlands, garriques and fields.
IUCN Category : Poco preocupante

Characteristics : This is a bush with a lot of leaves all of which point upwards and are shaped like a sword tip; some people could mistake it for Euphorbia but by quickly cutting off a leaf we can see that it does not give off white latex. It forms white flowers at the end of summer and in autumn. It is necessary to be careful with this plant because it is an irritant.

Ciao Josep Ignasi, bella e delicata composizione, ottimo sfondo OOF, bei colori naturali, bravo, buon week end, ciao Silvio

Hola Josep,
Excelente orientación y recorte en esta foto. Tefelicito por la impecable profundidad de enfoque. Es perfecta!... Buen trabajo, interesante planta! Buen fin de semana para ti y tu gente Josep.

Moltes gràcies Josep Ignasi, et volia comentar que els fruit madurs eren taronja vermellós però faig tard, encara que la coloració hi ajudam els tons i la composició en diagonal son molt acertats i has aconseguit uns magnifics resultats.
Que tinguis un bon cap de setemana. Nice WE.
TFS, Ferran.

Nice photo of this poisonous plant. This plant also has very strong fibers. So, I like make rope with this plants (very strong rope) :). TFS

Best regards

Hello Josep Ignasi,
Great presentation in image and notes.
The image is beautiful with very good sharpness, very nice colour and superb details.Thanks for sharing.Best regards Siggi

Hola Josep

Vaya interesante información que detallas, no sabía que esta planta era irritante, yo creo haberla visto varias veces. Perfecta composición de colores entre verde, blanco y anaranjado, una bella composición.

PD: me han eliminado una nueva orquidea que había puesto. Que le vamos a hacer, ya me lo esperaba en algún momento. Pero es que son muy bonitas....

Un saludo de Antonio

Hola Josep,

The composition works very well here. Simple but effective, just the way I like it.
TFS and have a nice night/weekend my friend!


Hola Josep I

Ciao Josep,
buona immagine di questa pianta, con un ottimo sfondo ma leggermente sovraesposta, con un po' di luce in meno sarebbe veramente una grande foto. Un saluto, Paolo

Hi Josep,

Congratulations, TFS

Best Regards,

Bonjour Josep,
Très belle macro finement détaillé et délicatement colorée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Josep Ignasi.
The fruiting flowers are just fabulous in diagonal framing.
Delicious shot with grand colors in the frame.
Thanks for sharing and kind regards - Jusni

Hallo Josep
Just so beautiful! The fruits looks like small tomatoes and just the right size for a mixed salad, but I don't think that will be advisable to eat it. I tried to see in your notes if they are poisonous could not find any reference to that. Although you mention that the flowers are an irritant they remain pretty with delicate petals and fine features. This is a lovely image. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
