Hello Friends. Today we went to a village wihch named as Bogazova, near Inegol Province and 54 km far from my house. It was a graet place, on 1756 meter altitude, among huge pine trees, and so cool. The host family took us a hill which named as Tepel, and we watch from here nice places so far (for hunderts kilometers far)from our standing hill. But unfortunately there was a terrible haze and it would affect to take a photo. Because of this I didn't take any photo.

And... I found this wonderful and beautiful flower in this village. It was about 30 cm high and lives on wall bricks, among stones, way sides. I've never seen before a beautiful flower like this. Our hosts told us that some people pulled up it and cultivated as a decorative plant on their houses. The chief of vilage has prohibited to pull up this plant and protected it. This is an appropriate and an important judgment for this plant. I asked for chief of village but he has gone to Inegol and I couldn't meet him. If I could, I'll ask him about this plant, for example it's name, is it an endemic plant or not...

Perhaps one of you know tihs beautiful flower and you can help me with ID.

Greetings

Dear Hervé Gomila has replied my help request and he told me that it is species of Impatiens genus from Balsamiaceae Family. You can find more info about this genus here. This genus is so crowded; it has been had about 900-1000 specieses. :) I'm now trying to find its species name.

Bonjour Fevzi,
Je pense que c'est une espèce du genre Impatiens. J'espère que ça t'aideras pour l'identifier.
Salutations

I have no idea what it is but I do know that I like it and your photo is quite beautiful. The light and depth of focus is just wonderful. The sharpness on the flower against that darker background is stunning.

Out of pts for now

Merhaba Fevzi abi,

Resim şahane. Bu resim bir Impatiens cinsine ait. Fakat Türkiye florasında sadece Impatiens noli-tangere mevcut. Diğer türleri bizde genelde bahçe veya saksılarda kültür olarak yetiştirilir. Cam güzeli olarak bilinir. Bu foto Impatiens balfouri türüne ait olabilir ama örnek olmadan kesin birşey söylemek zor. Eğer doğal bir ortamda rastlamışsan belki de yeni bir tür veya kayıt bile olabilir. Phyteuma gibi. Bu bitkinin bir özelliği daha var. Meyvesine dokununca patlayarak tohum saçan bitkilerden. Yani otokori görülen bir bitki. Eşek hıyarı gibi.

hayvan çekimleri zor diyordunuz, ama bu kadar güzel çiçek resimlerini çekmek de zor, yerinde sabit kalsalar da. bu ayrı ustalık sanırım. çünkü uçan kuşu çeksem de net, detayları gösteren bitkiler daha zor geliyor bana. eline sağlık hemşehrim, 4/4lük. iyi geceler, selamlar. ahmet

Merhaba Fevzi, Selam!!
excellent exposure and focus with good DOF
very beautiful composed with vivid colour
very well done
cheers

hello Fevzi,
That's really a beautiful picture and a very fine flower. It reminds me of the Himalayan Balsam we have here in our Botanical Garden. Very artistic presentation.
Best regards
Anne

Hi Fevzi,
A simple and beautiful composition. I love the bright foreground colours of the flower against the dark BG. Well done,
regards
Matt.

Hola Fevzi,
Una bella composición en la que destacan con gran nitidez sus bellosc colores sobre el fondo, TFS.
Saludos

Very interesting shape of this subtly coloured flower, Fevzi. I think it also grows in the Himalayan valley I come from in India because I have a clear recall of it.
The image is well framed and beautifully presented.
TFS and regards.
