[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The most beautiful of Salvia species growing in Israel.
This is a perennial plant flowering in April-May.
Flowers can grow up to 150cm high.
The flower is big (more than 30mm) and polinated by big bees.

I decided to take a close up picture to show the individual flowers rather than the plant itself.

I really like the wide angle on this and the detail is excellent, though I am left wondering what is up the stem...

Great composition and POV.

Hi Shir,
Great cpature. Composition is very strong making the most of the symmetry of the flower.

H Shir.
This is so beautifully presented -- as is all your work.
Great detail and colours.

Interesting object.
Perfect composition and really nice color.
Regards, Krzysztof.
