Hi Shir,
What an intersting flower and how well captured. The flowers look a little like pasta, especially those on the left. The details and clarity of this photo is perfect. The DOF could be a little better, but that is nit picking.

Hola Shir,
Excelente y original macro de estas plantas que tienen que parecen ser muy pequeñas. Buena luz y gran nitidez. Saludos

Hello Shir,
Very detailed closeup of the bindweed with nice color and light. I like the OOF BG and the bit of blue there. It gives a great feel for the sandy mediterranean environment this plant thrives in..
Very well done.

Hello Shir
This Convolvulus is a very interesting species of plant. Both the leaves and buds have fine hairs. I would love to see this flowers open. The colour is warm, sharp and vivid. Nice composition of the buds and branch across the entire photo.
