Viola arvensis

Viola arvensis is a species of the genus Viola. It is also called Field pansy. Also called Heartsease, possibly due to the odor of Wintergreen when the roots are crushed. This plant is native to Europe, but is found in old fields and waste ground in the eastern United States. Amongst the earliest of Violets to appear in the spring, it seems to utilize some sort of growth retardant on nearby plants, appearing to be the only plant growing in the large masses it forms. Outside these colonies, the grasses and herbs grow normally.

Flower's size - 15mm

I am impressed by this picture and the results of the Sigma lens.The flower is "perfectly" sharp, detached from the BG; Well done

Bonjour Leonid,
Agréable macro bien composée dans un cadrage parfait sous un excellent angle de prise de vue et une belle lumière qui permettent d'apprécier la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs avec une assez bonne opposition sur l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Love the soft light & color Leonid.
Well seen from the BG, the short DOF works nicely here.
Perhaps a tiny bit more space right, less left would be better?
Subjective of course ;}
