[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Limodorum abortivum is a saprophytic plants, this means that it gets all its nutrients from rotting forest materials, thus it doesn't have any green leaves and it doesn't photosynthesize. It is rather rare in Israel and a protected species. Since it grows under scrubby trees there is no option but to photograph it using flash.

Hello Ori,
Outstanding camera work with amazing results. Details and colors are incredible beautiful, thank you Ori.

You demonstrate a very succesful usage of the flash with this fine capture Ori, I had noticed the peculiarity in your former post, here it is more prominent: there are some "greeneries" on the plant, sure it does not photosynthesize at all?

Hi Ori,

Excellent close-up! Beautiful, unusual flower, really nice image, thanks for posting it.
