[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear friends,
This is my photo number 100.It says a lot of my trajectory in TN:few moments of shade, others out of focus... Many other dark... but also I had great moments of light that are all of you, the good friends which came into my life over these two years that I'm here watching great pictures, learning with great photographes and sharing together the love we have for the nature.
I would like to thank, in a very endearing way, to my dear friend Gérard Dupuy ( gé-fleur) who so far from the Reunion Island,introduced me to the site and convinced me to post my first pictures.


All my love,


Anthurium, is a large genus of about 600–800 (possibly 1,000) species, belonging to the arum family (Araceae). Anthurium can also be called "Flamingo Flower" or "Boy Flower", both referring to the structure of the spathe and spadix.

TROPICOS lists 1901 types, although some of these are duplicates. It is one of the largest and probably the most complex genus of this family; certainly it is one of the most variable. Many species are undoubtedly not yet described and new ones are being found every year. The species has neotropical distribution; mostly in wet tropical mountain forest of Central America and South America, but some in semi-arid environments. Most species occur in Panama, Colombia, Brazil, the Guiana Shield and Ecuador. According to the work of noted aroid botanist Dr. Tom Croat of the Missouri Botanical Garden, no members of this genus are indigenous to Asia. Deliberately or accidentally however, some species have been introduced into Asian rain forests, and have become established as aliens, but however familiar they might now seem, they are not indigenous.

Hello Ana,
a simple but very attractive shot. The softness of the colours in a pleasant background makes this presentation so pleasant and attractive.
nicely presented floral shot!


Very nice light and good pose with beautiful colours of this flower!!!

Ciao Ana. The best light's manageemnt as possibile. Fine details and good sharp against the fascinating dark BG. Great gift for your 100th post. TFS.


Bonita manera de celebrar la foto nº 100 de tu repertorio: Felicidades !!!
Eso que dices de los enfoques y esas cosas es lo de menos. Aquí estamos los que amamos la fotografía
y la naturaleza. Yo valoro más una rara especie que un super-trabajo con Photoshop. Tú mira mis fotos iniciales y las de ahora... han pasado cinco años y sigo haciéndolo mal... mejorando algo:-) pero como
tu dices, esto me ha abierto la puerta a aprender y a conocer nuevas personas de diferentes culturas e ideologías... y eso no tiene precio Ana.
A seguir disfrutando de tus plantas y espero ver 100 más dentro de pocos meses.

Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Jolie présentation de cette fleur, le focus la netteté et les
détails sont superbes, j'aime le jeu d'ombres et de lumières, TFS


Oi Ana,
A luminosidade desta imagem é muito "romântica", mas também de corte e layout são elegantes e bem determinado. Desta vez o foco é precisa e fornece detalhes bom. Flor branca excelente.
Saudações, parabéns pela sua foto 100!
