Bonjour Ishi,
Excellent angle de prise de vue pour cette splendide macro bien éclairée et sous une profondeur de champ bien bien maitrisée permettant d'apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Bonjour Ishi,
Très belle espèce, inconnue en France (nous n'avons que 2 espèces de Glaucium). Les couleurs sont superbes et ton image très nette et lumineuse. Belle présentation.
