Hello Ori,
A wonderful image of this poisonous plant, it actually reminds me somewhat of a type of milkweed. The flowers may not be showy and brightly colored, but they have a distinctive beauty all their own. Nicely focused allowing us to view it's unique features in sharp detail. Exposure is right on the mark and I like what appears to be water as the BG.

Hello Ori,

Very common plant in our village. It's a medicinal plant too. We use this flower to worship Lord Shiva.
Thanks for showing,
