Scilla hispanica or Hyacinthoides hispanica
(Spanish common names: escila española, jacinto de bosque, jacinto de campo).

The Spanish Bluebell is a spring-flowering bulbous perennial native to the Iberian Peninsula. It is one of three species in the genus Hyacinthoides, the others being the Common Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) in northwestern Europe, and the Italian Bluebell (Hyacinthoides italica) further east in the Mediterranean region.

I thank Ori Fragman (fragman) and Fevzi Yapici (fyapici) for the identification.

Un colorido suave, una iluminación tenue, una profundidad muy adecuada, sólo el fondo no ha colaborado con esta bonita composición.
Una excelente presentación mi estimado amigo.
Saludos cordiales... Ricardo

Hola José.
It looks certainly a member of Liliaceae and maybe a Scilla species. But I'm not sure. This shot doesn't need any word to critize. Beause it is perfect. Anyway my friend do always the best. :)
Saludos sinceros y buonas diaz amigo mio.

Hermoso colorido el de esta flor.
He buscado en mis guías, manuales y notas a ver si conseguía encontrar su nombre pero no ha sido posible.
Perfectos los detalles, me gusta mucho.
Un saludo, JL.

Hi Jose,
I like this delicate flower with the pretty colour. I thought - this looks like a flower of spring - than I looked at the date you made the shot, and I'm right ;-)
I love it and wished it would be spring and not autumn. Winter is coming, brrrr ;-(

Hello Jose,
Pleasing frame-filling color. Good detail, DOF, and well focused.
Well done.

Olá umacor muito bonita .... as cores estão muito boas como sempre ..... a nitidez neste caso não é das melhores mas acho que não estraga a foto! Fica bem Ana:)

Hello Jose,
I found in your gallery this picture that I haven't commented yet :) I like this composition and DOF that let us see very good details on the center of the flower and the rest of the flower as well. Those colors are very soft but nice and clear and I like this touch of flash that lightened some part of them. This BG is very nice too and well appropriated. TFS,
