Black Forest is full of small streams, lakes, water ponds and many small or larger wetlands, a buttercup paradise. Yellow buttercup flowers in such wet areas are the first announcers of coming spring.
They are beautiful, but may be dangerous because they are often poisonous. If eaten they have a sour taste, which makes animals less likely to eat them; this defense mechanism improves their survival rate.
There are usually five petals, especially in yellow species. Buttercups usually flower in the spring and early summer.

Unusual for me to see orange buttercups. You have captured this little clump beautifully. They make a lovely picture against the green background. Ideally exposed with excellent control over depth of field.

J'aime beaucoup cette fleur. Le cadrage est excellent pour la mettre en valeur et sa couleur ressort très bien sur fond de verdure.

now this is very good quality macro with excellent use of shallow DOF. The blurred background makes this charming yellow flower stand out very nicely from the rest of the scenery. The colors have been wisely saturated and contrast well given.
Thanks for sharing

Your Black Forrest collection would make a fabulous calendar. The buttercups in this shot and the green foliage represent a terrific color combination, They are in sharp resolution against the blur of the background.
Warm regards, Miro,

Only a quick moment available for me tonight, but I wanted to be sure and commend you for another pleasing and visually enticing picture. Just as you mentioned, I really enjoy the fact you search out the non-traditional or unexpected subjects from a given locale. enjoy the weekend ahead. All the best.

Splendid this macro, these delicate and beautiful flowers in this pretty orange color, his conception diagonally looks great with the background a bit distorted vertical details.
A perfect colorful these vivid colors.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a good weekend.

The flowers are well placed in the frame. The pint of view is showing with precision the détails and the colors of the Buttercups. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
abmdsudi (42540) 2014-05-24 20:30
This is so good an image of the buttercups that it deserves to be on stage alone! A delicate image and a wonderful combination of colours taken amidst the soft green setting. The DOF is great in this where the background separation helps a lot to make it a stand out shot. Excellent close shot, Congrats

Superbe macro, netteté et couleurs merveilleuses, bon DOF, très belle réalisation
