This is a Lamiaceae (mint family) plant quite common thin the higher elevation in Israel. It blooms towards the end of spring. The flower is about 15 mm long. The plant may reach 40 cm in height. It is named after the little flat bowl-shpated fruit (scutella is a flat bowl or saucer in Latin).

Hello Ishi,
Nice macro of this flower in a pleasing diagonal composition, excellent sharpness and beautiful colours. Maybe the background can be a bit more blurred, the flower there is a bit distracting.
