Leonel suggested that we go visit the hills where he used to live. What a great idea! There were so many olive fields and beautiful flowers like I had never seen in the wilderness.
This little lamp-like flower caught my special attention.

The image was cropped and the little tip over the frame was copied from the stem because I accidentally omited it in the original shot.

Thank you for viewing.

Olá Lurdes,

Simples, solitária e bela.
Excelente moldura.
Parabéns e OPC

Bonjour Lurdes,

Une jolie fleur très révérencieuse.
Elle cache son coeur et laisse juste sa robe en admiration.
Bravo pour cette gentille image.
Agréable journée.

PS : merci pour votre visite.
Amicalement. Yolande

Bonjour Lurdes,
On dirait une tulipe qui a oublié de lever la tête.
Jolie composition bien cadrée.
Merci du partage.

Hi Lurdes
What a gorgeous flower! It looks like a species of Fritillary. The color is very rich plus the details are nice and sharp. A simple but meaningful portrait.

Olá Lurdes

Bonita e diferente esta flor, parece mesmo
com uma lâmpada, ou melhor, uma luminária.
Bonitas cores e texturas.
Grande abraço

Terrific flower, Lurdes! The image is very striking! It seems as though it's coming right out of the frame. The colours and details are superb. I like your nice touches with the shadow and the copied tip. Great blurred BG. TFS.

hi lurdes
beautiful wild flower,amazing shape and colours and good detail.

Hi Lurdes,
What an intriguing looking flower. The way it hangs down from the stem is awesome. Looks like you've done a great job with the composition, not to mention the great DOF from f/4. I like how it slightly protrudes through the frame too, that was a clever touch. Bravo.


Nice composition with this beautiful flower.
Interesting details and colors of it.Well done.
Best regards.Alin.
