Cistus salviifolius is a species of rockrose. Its common names include salvia cistus. This is a showy wildflower native to the Mediterranean region, in southern Europe and parts of Western Asia and North Africa.
Cistus salviifolius has spreading stems which may approach a meter in height and are covered in clumpy hairs. The oval-shaped green leaves are 1 to 4 centimeters long and have wrinkled light-colored edges.
The inflorescence holds one or more round flowers, each petal white with a yellow spot at the base. The stamens are also yellow and the anthers shed abundant yellow pollen. This plant is popular with bees.

Hi Fabrizio,
A very sharp macro shot of this busy flower crowded by so many insects.
Very good color saturation with a considerable DOF.
A pleasant face to face POV and a good tight crop.
Good job.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Hello Menin
A lovely shot of this poppy flower captured with her guests which all in good focus and sharpness and the shallow depth with contrast colors looks beautiful.
Best Wishes

Ciao Fabrizio,

This is a fine close-up capturing sharp, precise details of the flower and its occupants. The narrow dof is extremely effective.
Maybe a slight crop from the left would give a better off-centre composition but perhaps I am nit picking here.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)
