|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is the showiest of our Aristolochia species, known in English as birthworts, pipevines or Dutchman's pipes. The picture shows the open flower with a “mouth” of about 30 mm opening, on the background of the typical leaves.|

A fine capturec indeed under diffused lighting Ishi, this looks much similar to our A. sempervirens.

This is an excellent capture of this beauty! I love Aristolochias with their peculiar 'pipe'-like flowers. This one has very beautiful markings and colours and the leaves look lovely as a background too.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla
Très belle présentation du sujet avec cette agréable macro permettant d'apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.

Happy that you show a Aristolochia-species which is the foodplant of the Southern Festoon, the butterfly I just presented on TN. I didn't know so much about this plant and it has a real amazing shape, reminds a pipe indeed.
Good framing and sharpness.
Thanks s lot and
