Field garlic (Allium oleraceum) is a bulbous perennial that grows wild in dry places in northern Europe, reaching 80cm in height. Sometimes, the flower-heads are found containing bulbils only. The spathe is in two parts.
Field Garlic is native to temperate Eurasia. It can also be found in the United States near Illinois. (Wikipedia)
L'ail des champs (Allium oleraceum) est une plante herbacée vivace de la famille des Alliaceae.
C'est une plante à bulbe à tige solitaire. Les feuilles sont linéaires engainant la moitié inférieure de la tige. Le spathe qui entoure l'ombelle avant floraison s'ouvre en formant deux valves allongées. Des bulbilles peuvent parfois totalement remplacer les fleurs dans l'ombelle.
Habitat type: pelouses basophiles médioeuropéennes, bords des chemins, haies
Aire de répartition: eurasiatique tempéré. (Wikipedia)

Hi Catherine. A very simple but effective capture of the garlic. You have pastle colours which are spot on . good detail and a bonus with the little insect. well done TFS. good notes too.

Splendida composizione per questa infiorescenza di aglio con insetto, ottima nitidezza, fantastici i colori, la luce e BG. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Great abstract of nature at its best. wonderful overall colors and impressionist background. The insect's position is just appropriate.
good work.

Hello Catherine,
Nice warm light in this image and excellent depth of field, not always easy with a dSLR. Nice sharp details, just a little over-exposed with some detail lost in the highlights but noting too serious. A nice image.

i love this one as it feels more artistic in its approach. i wonder what the bug is.
