[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Trifolium campestre is one of the commonest annual trefoils of the Mediterranean region. Thousands of annuals evolved around the Mediterranean where they grow one besides the other. Up to half of the Mediterranean flora (and sometimes more) is annual. This is why many evolution research projects are held in this region. If u look at the corolla, u can see that it doesn't wilt, it curves down and seves later as a wing for the seed wind-disperal.

Hi Ori.
Wonderful flower and superb quality of the shot with stunning small aperture value, great wide DOF and terrific sharpness and details of all components of the plant. Colours and combination of sharpness/blurriness also are amazing. Bravo and TFS.

hi ori,
what a curious looking plant and flower. nicely captured with details and appropriate background. tfs.

Hi Ori.
Excellent lighting, DOF, exposure and detail.
Beautifully taken.
Interesting on the seed wind-disperal off the corolla that does not wilt serving as a wing, I suppose the wing helps it spread wider out rather than just falling straight down. Being an annual, the further the seed can spread the larger the ground covered.

Hi Ori,i never seen a yellow trifolius,for me it's a great news! The leaves are the same at ours,but the flower is completely different.Thanks to show us this unknown beauty,have a nice Sunday,Luciano

Preciosa Ori , y aunque no tiene la calidad de otras de tus tomas, sobra para mostrarnos la belleza de esta planta que yo desconocía. Buenos detalles de las hojas que delatan que es un tipo de trébol.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi

Hi Ori,

Interesting note and a wonderful close-up of this flower. Here in the mid-western US, native annual flowers are fairly rare, almost all of our native plants are perennials, so I find the annuals from other parts of the world to be a bit exotic. In the south-western US where we have desert, annuals are much more common, as one would expect.


Hello Ori,
Very nice macro with sharp details

Nice detail and color. Excellent photo for purposes of identification.


Hi Ori,
Very nice picture. TFS.
