Salam Akhi Prof. Ahmet,
lovely purple that emerged out of the dry highlands. Such a contrasting view in good and rich colours.
It is such an exciting finding that the flower and plant thrive well in this place.
Well presented capture.

Hi Ahmet,beautiful choice of point of view to create an excellent composition.Perfect focus,light and colors,very interesting specie too.Thanks for share,have a nice Sunday,Luciano.

Hello Ahmet,
This plant is completely new and unknown to me. Beautiful composition and very neat presentation. Well done.

Very beautiful tones of blue on this exotic flower from your part of the world, Dr Ahmet. The plant bearing this flower stands alone in a seemingly arid looking environment. The eyes are automatically riveted on the subject by the force of its compelling beauty.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Ahmet,

Bu naif sümbülün nefis bir yakın plan çalışması olmuş Ahmedim, ellerine sağlık dostum. Bu grubun kaderinden midir nedir, buna da bir yöremizde "Gavurbaşı" demişler nedense, malum, M. comosum'a da "Arap bilmemnesi" derler Ege bölgesinde...

Tebrikler dostum!
Cok tesekkürler ederim,
Eline saglik,

Hallo Ahmet
I saw you where present on the site and I got quite excited as I thought you where going to post a new image but to my disappointment there where none, and therefore I will leave my penny of thoughts on this image that I have not yet critiqued. What a super image of this Muscari neglectum, the variation of different colours of purple is so beautiful, and it displays so beautifully in its natural habitat and amongst the rocks. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Dear Ahmet
I have read about Demirkazik and the glorious mountain range Taurus.

I have seen this cute little plant with the distinctive smell in the European Alps somewhere.(Trauben hyacinthia in German).

Thanks for the detailed notes., and I add your photo to my theme "high altitude". Thanks for sharing. Now, that I think about it, I realise, that many plants at high altitude are medicinal...

Have a good week
Warm greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa,
