[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ononis pusilla is a small perennial that grows in the Middle East mountains, in Israel it reaches its southern border. I love these small plants, we nickname them 'belly-plants' - meaning u have to lie down on your belly in order to enjoy them.

Hello Ori, wonderful macro capture of this beautiful wild flower. TFS and regards,

Very interesting perennial and well presented. I have always had a liking for the smaller "gems" of nature that many folks overlook as they go about their busy lives. For me it's not so much "stopping to smell the roses" as it is "getting close to nature's smallest gems".



Hello Ori,
hope you will put all your great pics in a book about eastern mediterranean flora- wonderful sharp pic.
Greetings Hans

Thanks Ori for sharing this beautiful plant.

Hi Ori,

A fascinating-looking plant, belly-plant indeed. I like the colors of the foliage, a real contrast with the color of the rock, very attractive image, excellent sharpness and detail.


Bonjour Ori,
Agréable publication dans laquelle le sujet est bien présenté avec une bonne opposition à son environnement.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Ori,
Interesting footnote to this one..
Great image & well done!
