Hello Friends.

First of all I wish you a great week. Today 8th March, the day of women. Although we mustn't remember our women for only a day, this a special day for us. We men were born by a woman who called as our mum. She is a woman. We husbands have a wife, she is a woman. We fathers have a daughter, she is a woman. All of them mean the women are wery special for us. And we men shall remember the women for everytime, not for only a day.

I decided to dedicate a special photo of mine to our special life friends; to women, especially to my wife.

I don't know this beautiful flowers name in English. But we call it as "Kadin Ayasi" in Turkish and means "woman's palm".

Hallo Fevzi
This is the 2nd image that spoils my eyes this morning and there are more in the gallery that I saw. This purple Kadin Ayasi is indeed striking and displays beautifully against the dark background. Thanks for sharing these beautiful flowers as part of a dedication to all the ladies on Womans day. It is great pleasure and delight to look at such pretty flowers, not only for the lovely shape but because it is in the colour that makes my knees week namely purple. Best regards.

Beautiful image of interesting plant with very colorful flower, I wonder why its called 'woman's palm'

Merhabalar Fevzi bey..
Tesekkur ediyorum..Cok etkiliyeci bir cicekle bizi onure ettiniz..Bir gun de olsa tum bayanlar hatirlanmaktan onur duyarlar ..Sagolun
Isiginiz bol olsun,

Çançiçeklerinden birinden harika bir gonca fotoğrafı. fonundan, netliğine, renklerinden kadraj seçimine her şeyiyle yine usta bir çalışma. eline sağlık hemşehrim. zevkle izliyorum bu nefis kareyi.
bu anlamlı günde çok güzel bir ithaf olmuş. notlarını okuyunca gördüm "Kadın Ayası" da çok güzel bir Türkçe admış ve seçimin ne kadar yerinde olduğunu bir kez daha gördüm.
sağlıcakla kal, selamlar.

Hello Fevzi,
Very beautiful photo of this flower. The colours are great and in a splendid contrast. Excellent sharpness and composition. Very nice dedication.

Merhaba Fevzi:)

Kadın ayası, biraz kadın şamarı gibi oldu:) Enfes bir makro çalışma olmuş dostum.
Naifler için çok güzel bir dedikasyon. Eline ve emeğine sağlık.
İyi geceler. Selamlar.


Merhaba Fevzi,
Nice dedication to your dear wife and to the women. This is a pretty capture, with bright colours. I took a shot of this flower last year too (here), but opened. It looks quite different! I like the simplicity of the composition, with the dark green background. Who made this strange bubbles on the stem? A snail? Iyi geceler MF,
