We found this peculiar Euphorbia in the sandy extreme desert. If u look carefully, u can see caterpillars on the plant. They are Hyles tithymali ssp. deserticola
Thanks to Peter (BATU) for the ID.

Hello Ori,
Great image of the plant Ori, I have a question how due plants survive when the wind blows the sand, does it not cut them off? Thank you for sharing Ori.
