[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a side view of a bud. Compare to the open flower(http://www.treknature.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=179213).

Here you can see quite well the artichoke-like structure of this lovely composite.

The lighting is (as usual for me) natural sunlight.

Hi Ishi,

great light and good of sharpness.

Great lighting and texture Ishi... as well an interesting subject. TFS


Hi Ishi!

I like the natural lighting in your pictures very much. Your composition with the blurred repetition of the plant and the depth of view highlight the structure and patterns of this beautiful plant very well.

Kind regards

Hello Ishi,
This is a very nice close-up of this bud that indeed reminds me of an artichoke. Excellent composition showing sharp details and nice light and colours.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
