[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Salvia microstegia is a tall, up to 100 cm, hemicryptophyte sage of high mountains. Israel is the southern limit of its range. Here it is found only on Mt. Hermon at elevations above 1400m. It blooms from June to September with 3-4 cm white flowers. Most of the plant is covered by sticky glandular hair. Those covering the flowers are violet, as seen here.

Bonjour Ishi,
Très jolie restitution sur le détail de ces fleurs (poils gladuleux violets).

Very nice flower. And nice capture of the life on it. I would have liked brighter whites with fill flash.

A very good close up shot Showing good detail and colour.
Best wishes,

Bonjour Ishi,
Très belle publication remarquable par la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
