Very good shot, I like the colours and use of DOF to isolate it from the BG. The complementary colours make this flower really pop out. The texture is wonderfully captured. Never seen the flower, no idea on the name.

Hi Alain,
Very nice colour, good lighting, well composed.

Bonjour Alain!

J'aime bien les fleurs et j'avoue que tes photos de fleurs on capté mon attention.
Comment fais-tu pour avoir des images aussi nettes de sujets si petits. Et la lumière est très belle, on sent la transparence de la fleur. Bravo
