[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Forget-me-nots can be annual or perennial plants. Their root systems are generally diffuse. Their seeds are found in small, tulip shaped pods along the stem to the flower. The pods attach to clothing when brushed against and eventually fall off, leaving the small seed within to germinate elsewhere. The seeds can be collected by putting a piece of paper under the stems and shaking them. The seed pods and some seeds will fall out.

They are widely distributed. Most Myosotis species are endemic to New Zealand, though one or two European species, especially the Wood Forget-me-not, Myosotis sylvatica have been introduced in most of the temperate regions of Europe, Asia and America. Myosotis scorpioides is also known as scorpion grass.

In the United States of America, the forget-me-not is the state flower of Alaska.

Great macro. They are some sweet flowers. I love the colors.

Hi Mehmet,
Nice view of this 'forget me not'. Beautiful macro details and colours!
Best, Arie:)

Hi Mehmet,
Beautiful composition and colors.
Too bad you haven't included any descriptive note. Also, the picture is a bit noisy. You should use noise reduction software.
