Merhaba Volkan,
Nice to see a endemic Stachys from Turkey and a beautiful bumblebee as bonus! Very shap capture, with good colours. Warm regards from cold Belgium,
Catherine

Merhaba Volkan,
Tmoleos'un iki güzelini bir karede bize sunmuşsun. Biri hoş kokulu bir Lamiceae üyesi, diğeri de arıların en gösterişli ve güzel türlerinden biri.
Eline sağlık,
Ömer.

nice closeup, TFS Ori

Bombuslu güzel bir kompozisyon olmuş Volkan. Diğer Lamiaceae'den farklı olarak bunun gövdesi enine kesitte yuvarlak mı?
Selam ve sevgiler.
Bayram

Selamlar volkan bey,
harika bir ikili arı ve çiçek,
tozlaşma için enfes bir tür:)
Elinize sağlık.
İyi geceler.
