I was delighted to see lots of Cistanche phelypaea near Erfud oasis. Its the first time I saw it on date palms and not on chenopod shrubs.

Hello Ori,
Beautiful photo of this plant in very nice natural colours and good sharpness. Great POV and composition.

Hi Ori,

An amazing-looking plant, and an excellent photo, nicely detailed and sharp, very attractive colors with the bright yellow flowers against the dry-looking palm trunk.

Thanks for sharing,

Hola Ori

Vaya con la planta donde ha ido a crecer, junto a las palmeras, ahÝ nadie le va a quitar el puesto.

Una toma excelente de esta planta con unos colores amarillos intensos y buen contraste.

Un saludo Antonio

I can't understand that how beside a big trunk there a flower, in beautiful colour..

Unfortunately I have not seen this plant during my visit in Morocco, but I wanted to. I suppose I have been there out of flowering time.
Nice photo with background of palm bark. Regards,
