Gerbera (/ˈdʒɜrbərə/ or /ˈɡɜrbərə/) L. is a genus of plants in the (daisy family). It was named in honour of German botanist and medical doctor Traugott Gerber[3] | (1710-1743) who travelled extensively in Russia and was a friend of Carolus Linnaeus.[4]

Gerbera is native to tropical regions of South America, Africa and Asia. The first scientific description of a Gerbera was made by J.D. Hooker in Curtis's Botanical Magazine in 1889 when he described Gerbera jamesonii, a South African species also known as Transvaal daisy or Barberton Daisy. Gerbera is also commonly known as the African Daisy

One of the beautiful art work of today great patterns warm colours, and lovely details well done ROBERTO INTILE

I agree with Marine when she says that this is the artwork of the day. High quality capture highlighting shape, color and variety of shades.
I just did not understand why the court that sacrifices a fraction of the petals.
But even so, it is a pleasure to behold.

Hi Roberto

We have something similar hanging in our dining room.
Lovely warm, pleasing colours with a background that doesn't intrude at all. I also like the composition. The fact that the petals leave on the left hand side have been omitted from the picture, I don't mind. I can say no more than what anyone else has said.

Hi Roberto,
What a fiery eye catcher, great contrast and sharp subject.


Its a good shot with great contrast and perfect focus. Very colorful.
