|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|While it is already late September, summer seems to be still here. However, some fall flowers are already in bloom, starting at the highest mountain peaks. Here is Sternbergia clusiana (Amaryllidaceae) photographed today on Mt. Hermon at an elevation of 2200 m above sea level. Like other "early bloomers", it blooms without growing leaves, which appear later in the season. The flower is about 5 cm high. Note the very dry rocky background.|
In Hebrew we call the Sternbergia "Helmonit", namely, "egg-yolk flower".
