Hi Jitti,

This is the most beautiful "weed" I have ever seen. The pastel colors are wonderful. Beautiful close-up.

Hi Jitti
It is on it a superb photograph of flower is colours are superb

Hallo Jitti
I have been away for a while and missed out on some lovely photos. I am now trying to catch up when I have the time and came across your beautiful Hyacinth image. I really like this image. The details are so well displayed and there is such a lot to appreciate. The different colours are a perfect match with one another. The anthers are just perfectly formed and the shapes are really eye-catching. It also looks as if they have a gloss or glitter on them. A well presented image, which I enjoyed looking at. I especially like the patterns on the petals that look like flames. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day.
Kind regards

Hi Jitti.
Amazing tender shot of charming plant and flowers. I am impressed with delicateness of the colours, great details of the flowers and nice blurriness of the BG. Despite the absence of the sunlight colours are rich and pleasant. Well done and kind regards.
