[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I have seen sometimes this inconspicuous purple flower and never looked at it with more attention. Its heads are very tiny, ca 5-6mm and we have to look closer to discover the finesse and beauty of this plant.
I looked through my flowerbook and couldn't find the name.
But I'm sure that it is not such an uncommon species, but probably it is not so often shown.
I would be very thankful if somebody could help me with an ID.

Thanks to Christodoulos to have given me the Family to which this flower belongs to.

I'm not sure if this is:
Epilobium alpestre or
Epilobium anagallidifolium (Alpenweidenröschen)
I think however that it is most probably Epilobium anagallidifolium.

Hello Anne,
How beautiful and how well observed! You are making my Saturday afternoon. May I suggest you clone out the light patch in the lower left BG. But what a pleasure to view. Well done and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Beautiful photo Anne! Very good POV and composition, wonderful colours and very good sharpness . It is an Epilobium sp.

Hello Anne,
A photo in a splendid composition and a very good DOF. Excellent sharpness and beautiful colours too. I agree with Neels about the patch in the BG. But it's a beauty!

Hallo Anne
Beautiful indeed!The details are fine and very delicate, yet prominent and eye-catching, especially the tips of the anthers and the veins on the petals. I also like the unopenend flower buds and the dark and rich colour of the plants stems. A delightful floral macro. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
