EUPHORBIA MILII (Espina de Cristo)
Muchas gracias a Victor (Juyona) por la identificación.

Esta foto la tomé hace unos días en Yaiza, un precioso y pintoresco pueblín a pocos kilómetros del Parque Nacional de Timanfaya, en Lanzarote.
No conozco el nombre de la flor, pero nada más verla me enamoré de ella y le saqué un par de fotos. Esta es la que más me gustó.
Está un poco recortada a ambos lados y le he añadido el borde con photoshop.
Espero que os guste porque la he traído para vosotros.

Un millón de gracias.

EUPHORBIA MILII (Crown of Thorns)
Thank you very much also to Jitti for the English name ;).

I took this shot a few days ago at Yaiza, a beautiful picturesque village near the National Park of Timanfaya, in Lanzarote.
I don't know the name of the flower, but the instant I saw it I fell in love with it and took a pair of shots.
This one is which I like most.
It's a bit cropped in both sides and I have added the border with Photoshop.
I hope you like it cause I have brought it for you.

By the way, does anybody know its name?
Thank you!!

Hola Maite,
Bella euforbia, asombrosa por su tallo espinoso rematado en por esa flor tan jugosa y coloreada. Buena composición, punto de vista y profundidad de campo.
Un saludo, José M.

Hola Maite,
Una toma muy bonita y de gran composición contrastando entre la suavidad y belleza de la flor y el tallo de espinas. La nitidez, luz y color son excelentes. Saludos

Bella flores Maite captadas con intensos colores y apropiado foco sobre las mismas.
El punto de vista y el encuadre algo centrado no son los ideal tal vez para retratar a estos ejemplar, siempre desconociendo las condiciones de la captura.
Me encanta el detalles de las monstruosas espinas desenfocadas brindando una idea de la conformación de esta especie.
Cordiales saludos... Ricardo

Muy bonita foto, sobre todo por lo pequeñisima que es esta flor enhorabuena. Saludos cordiales desde Tenerife.

Hola Maite.

Te ha quedado muy chula, qien pudiera pasar unos dias en ese parque en esta epoca, para quitarse un poco de invierno de encima.

Saludos.
Jose Luis.

Hello Maite,
beautiful velevet surface and fine details on red petals in pleasantly soft light, in excellent contrast to the very spiny grey parts in the back. Pretty composition, and a very nice presentation of that desert plant from Madagaskar in blossom, with very well visible flowers, leaves, and thorns.
Thank you! Best regards,
Peter

Hello Maite,
a lovely compisition, I do like how the sharpness ebbs into the BG showing of the flower so well. POV, sharpness and details are wonderful. Very nice framing to enhance the photo.

bonjour Maite,
jolie composition florale, qui laisse deviner le danger des piques en arrière plan.
Bonne gestion de la lumière.

Esta planta aqui no Brazil é conhecida como coroa de cristo e muito utilizada como cerca viva.
parece-me se não estou enganado ela ser muito tóxica.

Um abraço

Hi Maite,
this is an interesting photo of this very thorny looking plant with those nice red blooms,I sure would not to trip and fall on these.The colour is mellow and the way the leaves are coloured in two tone is nice.The flowers are nice and soft in contrast to the thorns and the composition is good.Tfs. Bob

Dear Maite!
This time I decided to look at for pictures from the past and because of the unique flowers today comment to this one :)
Shape and colours of these flowers are very nice for my eyes. I like also a composition of the photo. On the other hand I would suggest to use sharpness a little more :)
Anyway, very interesting presentation of plant which was not known for me before :)
Regards,
Radomir
