[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Chives are small bulbous perennials which are commonly used as culinary herbs to impart mild onion flavor to many foods, including salads, soups, vegetables and sauces. Plants also have good ornamental value. Features thin, tubular, grass-like, dark green leaves which typically grow in dense clumps to 12". Attractive, globular, clover-like clusters of pale purple flowers subtended by papery bracts appear in spring and summer on scapes (stems) often rising above the foliage to 18" tall. Flower heads can be used as a garnish for soups and salads.

Hola Shir,

Hi Shir,
Outstanding the DOF used here!
The result is so good and artistic, I like so much the composition made with the inclined flowers.
It's so good the lighting on the chives.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Shir.
Very beautiful. Lovely light, colour and sharpness. I had no idea chives looked like this. Great close up shot. Well done.
