I found it upon checking out a kind of macro lens that has been whispered around by some forum members, haha... What luck, eh?


Acapulco,

Thank you. Yes, yes, yes. Of course. It's even the regional flower of Uppland. Native to Europe.

There is a popular myth connected with this plant - in English King's Meadow Lily (Kungs Ängs Lilja)

From Wiki, I'll try to translate to English

"En populär folklig myt hävdade att liljorna på Kungsängen står där efter ett slag mellan svenskar och danskar. För varje fallen dansk skall en röd lilja ha växt upp, för varje svensk en vit. Slaget skall ha slutat med en stor svensk seger, vilket skulle förklara varför de vita blommorna var så sällsynta"

"I'll be back", as president Arnold says

Yes, it's about time to make war to the Danes. You don't understand the strange language anyhow

HAHA! Well some is understandable, but mostly it's just the old same thing, gargling porridge in their throat is what it sounds like to me.

But generally it depends on where they're from of course, just like the Swedes

Outstanding T!
I like the lighting in these, and the first one and last are my favorite. They all have that 3D like
look.
