[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a close-up of another very rare Mt. Hermon flower, Alkanna orientalis (Boraginaceae). A general view of the plant and its area was shown by Ori a few days ago.

The flowers are about 4 mm in diameter. Note the buds at different stage of development, and the fine hair typical of the family.

The WS shows more of the plant.
