[Normas para las notas] Notas del fotógrafo
Aquilegia vulgaris is a species of Aquilegia native to Europe. It is a herbaceous perennial plant growing to 1.2 m tall, with branched, thinly hairy stems. The leaves are pinnate, with the basal leaflets themselves trifoliate.

To traditional herbalists columbine was considered sacred to Venus; carrying a posy of it could arouse the affections of a loved one. Nicholas Culpeper recommended it to ease the pains of childbirth. In modern herbal medicine it is used as an astringent and diuretic.[1]

Hi Marjan,
Excellent capture of this flowers!
I like the details got on the main one, and the colour saturation got.
Very appropiated the DOF and the way all the elements become softly blurred, even the background.
Useful the use of the fired flash.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Joli détail de l'intérieur de la fleur.
Bonne journée.

Hi Marjan,

a lovely shot, the colours and sharpness are superb. It's always fascinating to know about the uses and history of plants throughout the ages.

Many thanks,
