Hello Annd,
Beautiful colours and patterns in excellent composition. Interesting that the darker lines are only visible on one petal per blossom and how the curved-petal top right enhances the composition - for me anyway. A very pleasant image to view. Best wishes.

Hallo Anne,
gutes Foto von diesem Langspornveilchen mit toller Schärfe und klasse Farben. Es ist schon beeindruckend wie viele verschiedene Veilchenarten es gibt. Diese ist wohl auf die Alpen beschränkt und dass das ein herrlicher Anblick ist, wenn man einen ganzen "Blumenteppich" dieser Art vor sich hat, glaube ich dir gerne.
Viele Grüße,
