Nice photo, good visible all the details of the flower. In my country it's very common and in fields is considered as weed.
Best regards, Pawel

Dr. Ori Fragman Sapir,
What a quaint little golden beauty.
We have something "similar" here in Alberta. We call it the Buffalo bean.
I had posted it sometime ago. They look so very similar and quite common in Alberta. You will recognize this at once. They are definitely NOT THE SAME.
Thermopsis rhombifolia, also known as Golden Bean, Buffalo Bean, Wet Tooth, and Buffalo Flower, is a hardy perennial native to the North American plains. A member of the pea family, it grows in grassland, hillsides, and patchy woodland areas to a height of about 30 cm, and produces bright yellow golden flowers about a centimetre long. The flowers were commonly used by the natives as a source of yellow dye and were boiled in a tea as a cure for stomach ailments for people and horses. The plant has toxic properties if ingested; symptoms of poisoning include vomiting, dizziness, and abdominal pain.
This plant is a beautiful addition to an early spring garden, but is extremely aggressive and must be contained.
Many years ago we also saw something very similar in Turkey. Wonder if it was the "Viola Occulta"???
Your compostion is MOST BEAUTIFUL, indeed!!!
Mario with peace in his heart for you & our beloved ISRAEL.

I just love Violas and this is a beautiful capture. I like the fact that you photographed the whole plant and not just the flowers. Good composition and detail. Next time when I visit Israel I will be spending more time photographing than site seeing. Well done and thanks for sharing.
