[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Oxalis pes-caprae

The genus name Oxalis is derived from Greek meaning sour, referring to the sour-tasting oxalic acid present throughout the plant. The species epithet pes-caprae means goat's foot, perhaps referring to the cloven shape of the leaves.

Also known as: Bermuda buttercup, African wood-sorrel, Cape sorrel, English weed, Goat's-foot, Sourgrass and Soursob.

Bonjour Jordan,
Les sujets sont bien présentés dans leur environnement mais un cadrage un peu plus serré, éliminant notamment la (drôle) de fleur située à l'extrême droite, aurait permis d'apprécier davantage la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
Gérard
