  1. Another great depth photo, plus nice and bright and a wonderful new species. Posted one year ago
    1. Thank you Ferdy. I was chasing birds with the long lens 200-400mm mounted on the camera. I spotted this flower on my way back and was already too tired and lazy to change the lens. So I stepped back and made a couple of photos with the long lens and surprisingly got quite good pics! Posted one year ago
      1. Hehe, I totally recognize that. I occasionally use the long lens for insects even. Other benefit is that with a long lens, you get this nice compressed perspective. Posted one year ago

''Asphodeline lutea'' is a perennial plant native to southeastern Europe, northern Africa, and Turkey. It is grown as a landscaping plant.

It has been associated with the Asphodel of the underworld, but see also the closely related Asphodelus ramosus.
