[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Damascus Campion is a small but lovely flower of a diameter of about 15 mm. It is one of the many campion species of the Eastern Mediterranean. Note the red ring at the base of the petals. We found this one at the end of its blooming season.

Shalom Ishi,
A striking and beautiful species of Campion, the POV just right to show the structure and shape of the flower, taken in fine lighting. The clarity and colours are excellent against the neutral OOF natural BG.
Thanks for sharing this!
