flower & Insects
- It has approximately 30 species in the wild, extending to South America, Africa, Madagascar, and tropical Asia. The first scientific description of a Gerbera was made by J.D. Hooker in Curtis Botanical Magazine in 1889 when he described Gerbera jamesonii, a South African species also known as Transvaal daisy or Barberton Daisy.
- Gerbera is very popular and widely used as a decorative garden plant or as cut flowers. The domesticated cultivars are mostly a result of a cross between Gerbera jamesonii and another South African species Gerbera viridifolia. The cross is known as Gerbera hybrida. Thousands of cultivars exist. They vary greatly in shape and size. Colors include white, yellow, orange, red, and pink. The center of the flower is sometimes black. Often the same flower can have petals of several different colors.

Salaam Ali,
beautiful colour well seen and the blurry background is very good. You make this shot excellent if the clarity of the insect is further enhanced.
Good composition.


Dear Mohd,
I like the POV, sharpness & details of the subject like a picture postcard. The lighting & composition for the flower & mosquito are superb. Excellent framing. TFS.

Olá Mohamad

Gostei muito desta foto pela simplicidade da composição e beleza das cores...gosto do contraste forte. O detalhe do inseto é bem interessante, parabéns pelo trabalho.
