[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The genus Wiedemannia (LAMIALES: LAMIACEAE) is represted in Turkiye by two species: W. orientalis and W. multifida. First of them, namely Wiedemannia orientalis is an annual herb. It is flowering in April to June and prefers in stony hill slopes, steppic areas, agricultural fields, roadsides and light soils in altitudes of 700-1650m a.s.l.
This species is an İran-Turan element and endemic to Turkiye. It ranges in almost all Anatolia (Asiatic Turkiye) (from TUBIVES).
The shot was taken about ten years ago in our university campus by one of first digital cameras, e.g. Olympus Camedia.

Hello Ahmet,
This photo is so bright and colorful that it actually seems to have a cheerful effect when viewed. How refreshing to see all these gorgeous flowers growing together in this lovely image. I really like the low POV and wonderful DOF. The detail is excellent and the exposure is right on the money. Well done!!

Salam Akhi Prof. Ahmet,
