|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Hervé’s posting of Anchusa crispa yesterday (www.treknature.com/gallery/photo242175.htm) prompted me to show our very blue Anchusa azurea ("Italian bugloss"), with many flowers, about 5 mm in diameter. The tuft of white bristles surrounding the stamen and pistil is to prevent nectar thieves such as small ants from reaching the nectaries without pollinating the flower.|

A striking capture of these incredibly blue Anchusa flowers. The colours are obviously not over-saturated and the sharpness and composition are excellent.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend,

Lovely to see another macro of these pretty bright blue flowers, although a different species from Herve's. Excellet details and wonderful colours. On the whole I love blue flowers, they're not as plentiful as yellow and pink ones. Here in th wild we have plenty of bluebells at the moment and in the garden I'm proud to have a Gentian in flower!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
Good close up from this little blue fower with razor sharpness and good pov.

I love the intense blue color of this Anchusa azurea, lighting, sharpness and presentation are superb
Thanks for this beautiful image
Have a good night
Merci pour ta publication en réponse. Anchusa italica est une splendide espèce et ton image restitue très fidèlement les nuances de bleu et les caractéristiques de la fleur. Y-a-il beaucoup d'espèces d'Anchusa en Israel?
