[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Teucrium polium is a common shrublet of hte Mediterranean region and SW Asia. In Israel it is one of the few species that occurs from the north (Mt Hermon whehre this was taken) to the far south (Eilat near the Red Sea). It is quite variable and often called in different names is each regions (in the Mediterranean it is sometimes called T. capitatum). It has scented-medicinal leaves. Leaf infusion is healthy but not really tasty. The whole plant is silvery-felted, hence loosing less evaporating water.

Hello Ori! I like the dark background and the lovely flower, the high lights are a bit OE though. Well done, thanks!


Hello Ori

Excellent POV and DOF.
The focus is sharp with lovely detail.
Good lighting and contrast.


Bonjour Ori,
Il me semble que l'utilisation du flash neutralise les couleurs et écrase un peu les détails mais c'est tout de même une intéressante pulication.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
