Hi Ahmet,

Another fantastic looking flower which is so different than anything seen where I live. Beautiful colors and details of both the flowers and the lovely leaves. A wonderful vertical composition and marvelous background.

Günaydin Ahmet!
A superb capture of this species of Digitalis, one that is so attractive and it is the first time I have seen this.
The flowers were taken with superb sharpness and lighting, which shows them at their best.
Thanks and best wishes to you and your family,

A small lesson in Swedish: 'god morgon' and 'god natt' are usually said and rarely written. We are rather boring and use 'hej' a both verbally and when writing. We usually finish by saying 'Hälsningar', meaning 'greetings'. Sometimes preceded by 'Bästa' meaning 'best'.
Bästa hälsningar frĺn Ĺhus (from Ĺhus, my town),

nice portrait, I remember this flower from N Turkey, greetings Ori

This picture is so good it is almost three dimensional, Ahmet.
Superb control of light here.
TFS rhis beauty and take care.

Merhaba Ahmet,

Best regards

Salam Akhi Ahmet,
excellent sharpness of this flower. As for me, foxglove does not really exist here. Such a beautiful colour too. You have muted the background very well.
So exciting to see a cluster of them in good light.


May our Ramadhan be blessed and the fasting accepted by God.

hello Ahmet
this is super!!
so good light and beautiful colours with good sharpness
great shot
greeting lou

Bonjour Ahmet,
Trčs belle publication bien composée, mettant bien le sujet en valeur, sous un excellent angle de prise de vue, par l'appréciation de la finesse des détails et de la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Merhaba Ahmet hocam,
Beautiful plant and colors. I only knew those species with yellow and purple flowers from the genus, so most probably Digitalis ferruginea doesn't live in Hungary. Great classical composition, good lights and OK sharpness, beautiful visual impact overall. Congrats and tfs (also for the whole theme).
Friendly regards, László
