Hello Lou.
This flower is pretty and unique with the design of the petals. Fine image with sharp details.
Thanks and kind regards.

Hello Laurens,

You're capturing well this plant by a good composition, good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the ARISTOLOCHIA ROTUNDA with stalkless and ovate leaves. It's impressive inthe tip with reddish-brown color, too. It looks like a mysterious species of plant.

Kind regards,

Bonjour Lou,
Très belle publication, finement détaillée et délicatement colorée, d'une plante originale.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
