Pisum sativum subsp. elatius

Common name: Wild Pea (English)
Nombre común: Guisante silvestre

P. sativum is an annual plant, with a lifecycle of one year. It is a cool season crop grown in many parts of the world, planting can take place from winter through to early summer depending on location
It has been cultivated for thousands of years. The sites of cultivation have been described in southern Syria and southeastern Turkey, and some argue that the cultivation of peas with wheat and barley seems to be associated with the spread of Neolithic agriculture into Europe.

Hi Jose

Sorry, no luck with the ID my friend.

A lovely capture though with amazing sharp details and stunning rich colours. The f/6.4 aperture ensured that the DOF covered the full range of the flower and noghing else thus rendering the BG and even some of the other vegetation well OOF. The excellent exposure is a plus factor. I would have loved to see a little more of the flower, especially the darker central area.

Well done and TFS.

Excelente luz, bellos colores y una textura de los pétalos muy bien captada.

Hi Jose,
Beautifull flower and splendid capture with excellent DOF and POV my friend. Unfortunately I have not got enough information to identify this beautifull flower. Sorry that I could not help on this. TFS.


nice pic, it looks like Pisum elatius (wild pea). TFS Ori

Bonjour Jose,
Encore une beauté qui se présente comme une coiffe bretonne. Il me semble que cela ressemble aux fleurs de petits pois. Très belles couleurs complémentaires.
J'espère que tu vas bien et que tu peux reprendre tes excursions dans la nature.

Hola José,
It is nice to see a sharp macro of the Wild Pea flower when I am more used to seeing white cultivated forms of it in my garden.
The POV, lighting and technical qualities are first class and I like the composition showing the OOF leaves in the BG.
Muchas gracias por compartirla,

Hi Jose,

This is a great shot with amazing details. I like a lot the greenish color visible at the base of the petals. The sharpness level is superb.

Hola Jose
!Qué flor más bonita la del guisante! ¡Y pensar que nunca me han gustado los guisantes! Bueno, que no es de mis platos favoritos, vamos. Pero ahora ya hay un motivo para que me gusten más. Los colores de esta flor son preciosos, y me encanta la forma tan fantástica en que has captado la textura de sus pétalos con todos sus nervios y exquisitas tonalidades. Una foto magnífica, como siempre.
Felicidades y muchas gracias.
Un cordial saludo

Hola Jose,
Wonderful close-up shot of this tiny but charming flower with such lovely colours and sharp details. Superb natural lighting and exposure and the precise DOF isolates it from the BG so nicely. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hello José,
I notice you have specialized in delicate flowers lately!
Here you capture incredibly fine details in the petals, and the colour reproduction is first class...
Good composition, and the subject stands out well in the frame!
