Hallo Ishi !

Splendid macro that surprised you.
A beautiful contrast of colors.

Chez nous aussi, il y a cette orchidée.Pas facile d'avoir de la netteté sur toute la photo... J'ai déjà essayé... en vain!

Hello Ishi,
We also have this species of Epipactis growing in our pine forests but they don't start to flower until July!
This is a good way to capture this large sopecies, the florets being sharply portrayed with fine sharpness and colours.
Thanks and best regards,

Bonjour Ishi,
Très belle présentation valorisant bien le sujet que je ne connaissais pas sous cet aspect.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
