Photographer's comments:

"The title of my picture is the guadeloupean's creole name of this plant (Leonotis nepetifolia) growing in a wild field. I choose to take a couple of picture of this plant at sunset time when the light was more great on this tropical archipelago of Guadeloupe.

I love to shoot with my 100mm macro, i'm always on the run with this lens and not only for macros."
