Hi Ori,

This is a good photo of this littel flower. Excelent colors and good sharp image. Nice composition with the sharp clear flowers in front and blurry background.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Ori, very unusual looking flower, such a convoluted shape!!! good colours and sharp details. tfs, regards h

Hi Ori
Excellent shot of Bird's-foot Trefoil. In the UK the flowers are mainly bright yellow - though I have seen variants with a similar colour to this one. They remind me of a sunset! Lovely, clear detail on the flowers with a subtle background to make them stand out. TFS.
Kind Regards

superb coloration, great POV and composition. also focus very nice. best wishes, Ori.

Hi Ori, excellent picture of this plant...I like colors , they look pretty....Regards, Leyla

Beautiful simple colored macro. Good DOF.


Bonjour Ori,
L. corniculatus est très variable, dans ses formes et ses couleurs. On peut trouver également en France des fleurs à couleur orange ou rouge, mais celles que tu montres sont vraiment spectaculaires.

Hi Ori

A beautiful view of this lovely flower - it is hard to believe that it is so common. Great work.


A striking image, the color is so brilliant. That species is a weed in much of North America now too, not too bad though, relatively well-behaved as far as non-native weeds go, at least so far. The ones here have yellow flowers, quite attractive actually.


Hi Ori
Great shot

Shalom Ori
A glorious shot of this beautifully coloured Lotus my friend. Great details and POV. TFS.


Bonsoir Ori
J'aime beaucoup les couleurs de ces lotus,
Merci pour cette belle prise de vue

Lovely capture.
