By capto
Lisianthus, real name Eustoma, a genus of three species in the family Gentianaceae, grows natively in warm regions of the Southern United States, Mexico, Caribbean and northern South America. Examples grow mostly in grassland and in areas of disturbed ground. These were found in Asdas.
First images with my new camera, much fun and some frustration to come I guess. The learning curve will help an aging brain to keep going I hope.

Incredible set Ivor Smile

I like your choice of V1 but V2 runs a very close second, it's a shame you posted them all at once, they could all stand alone for me.

an excellent set lighting and detail spot on Ivor a pleasure to view, as Dougie has said ''they could all stand alone''
