Photographer's Note

The wild mouths of wolf (Antirrhinum latifolium), pale yellow, abound in the sites which are appropriate to them in Provence (rock faces). They are often more rustic than it is generally believed. In the areas where they are cultivated into annual, there will be interest with simply folding back them with the autumn, without tearing off them, and there will be perhaps good surprises in spring.

When one exerts a pressure above, the parts higher and lower of the flower deviate and, when the pressure is slackened, the two parts are closed again. The large muffler, cultivated in the gardens, is originating in the Mediterranean. The muflier of the fields is a smaller species, rather widespread in the fields. The name of muffler is due to the resemblance of the flower bilabiée to the mouth of a wolf.

The photo is natural.
