Oranje boven

The Dutch name for the national football team is 'Oranje' after the colour orange of course. 'Oranje boven' means something like 'Orange's best/first' (can't think of a better translation at the moment).

Mind you, now that I look at the picture again, the colours look a lot like the Spanish colours, too.

Was expecting voetbal

The photo is very nice, the dof is off course the best feature with the colours.
It's great the flower has some yellow points to really hold the eye.

It cetainly is oranje, Lidy. I might have taken that shot from a slighter higher position - that way, you would have more of the in-focus area exposed for our admiration!
