Hi Volkan,
Great shot. Probably the edges of the flowers are too closed to the frame and minor camera shake's also visible, but I like compo and the natural colors. Now I'm embraced by this genus: today I managed to photograph Symphytum officinale, a few weeks ago S. tuberosum - unfortunately your species doesn't live here in Hungary. Thanx so much for sharing the pic and the note.
Have a great Sunday, friendly regards, László
