Hello Yiannis,

An interesting mountain plan, so different from what we can find in the lowlands!
In fact this looks more like something we'd expect to find below water hehehe...
A fine close-up with sharp fine details, colours are well reproduced!

Hello Yiannis,
Very special hairy plant typical for dry regions. They have beautiful and somehow funny flowerheads, they look like some show for kids. I suppose that they are so small that we can see them better on your macro.
Thanks for your interesting contribution
Kind regards

Hello Yiannis,
Really impressive depth of field here with these beautiful flowers and the leaves in their cushions. That macro lens did a fantastic job and so did you. Best wishes.
