This very nice and for the health of humans very important plant grows also in Germany. It was planted out into a lot of German fens and deemed as neophyte.

Hi Sascha,

Splendid photo of this interesting, new Plant, Vaccinium macrocarpon, TFS!

Hi Sascha,
so eine Blume ist mir wirklich noch nie aufgefallen, gibt es die häufig? Auf den ersten Blick hat sie mich an ein Türkenbund erinnert - ist natürlich völliger Quatsch, die wächst ja nicht an einem Busch - aber die Blütenblätter rollen sich ähnlich dekorativ auf.
Vielen Dank und liebe Grüße

Ciao Sacha. A delicate picture with brigh colours and intrigant playing of light.

hallo sascha, sehr schön getroffen, alles ist sehr harmonisch und stimmig.

Hello Sascha,

an good low pov andd deepthworking picture.
Fine natural colours and blurred bg.


nice one, TFS Ori

Gracias por tus amables comentarios Sascha y además tienes buena vista !!! creo que la planta se trata de Eryngium campestre, aunque E. bourgatti también está presente en mi zona.

Tu toma interesante, con una luz excelente aunque algo justa de profundidad de campo. Buenos colores.

Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Hi Sascha
Lovely shot of this beautiful Vaccinium macrocarpon .
Great shot of this lovely plant whir wonderful flowers.

Good evening Sascha,

I love the way that this photo of V.macrocarpum is positioned directly above a Martagon lily on your page, although I know it will not always be so! The flowers are so alike in many ways, with the beautiful recurved petals. I don't know what size the flowers are, but there is beautiful detail on the nearest one, with some leaves, and a good BG.

Warm greetings, Amelia
