Anemone coronaria (Crown Anemone, poppy anemone, Spanish marigold)is a species of flowering plant in the genus Anemone, native to the Mediterranean region.

Anemone (A-ne-mó-ne, from the Gr. Άνεμος, wind), is a genus of about 120 species of flowering plants in the buttercup family Ranunculaceae in the north and south temperate zones. They are closely related to Pasque flower (Pulsatilla) and Hepatica (Hepatica); some botanists include both of these genera within Anemone.

Anemone are perennial herbs; plants which grow from rhizomes, caudices or tubers. Leaves grow from the base and can be simple, compound or attached with a leaf stalk. Terminal inflorescences with two to nine flowered cymes or umbels, or solitary flowers that depending on the species can be up to 60 centimeters tall. The flowers are bisexual and radially symmetric. The sepals are not persistent in fruit, and can be white, purple, blue, green, yellow, pink or red. Fruits are achenes.

sorry for my silence. As I noted on my last post, I have been in field work for a long time and it will finish at the end of summer. Now, I can visit your last posts.
This is really great shot for very beautiful anemone flower. marvellous scene of colorful flower. Coloration superb. but also focus, POV, composition and exposure great. only human made object should be omitted.

Hello Umar, excellent shot of this anemone with beautiful colours and details.

I love anemones, but I did not expect them to grow in the desert! Beautiful photo and lovely colours.

Hello Umar !
I like this picture, because the flower seems to be growing on bare rock - nature finds a way to survive even on the most difficult soils. I really like the composition, here, and the natural colors, and the details on the flower. Very well done !
