[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
another pic of Onobrychis cornuta. A famous-common shrublet of SW Asian mountains. Its a cushion-like spiny plant, adapted to the very cold, often overgrazed habitat. Dr Oz Goan found out that the spines cause the snow to melt more quickly around the plant, hence elongating the very short growth time. In peak blooming is look like a purple cushion. Here u can see a young plnat that was found near the road in Mt Hermon, 2000m.

Hi Ori

Greetings from Jasper National Park.

A lovely and skillful shot. Lovely detail exposure and colour - I find plants like this very difficult to capture well.


A fine shrub in full bloom in its natural niche, as usual expertly photographed Ori. TFSit my friend.

Hi Ori,

Beautiful species and interesting. Very spiny. The photos made in sunny days are not very good. But it is a good photo.

All the best, Cezar T.

Hi Ori,

An even better shot, beautiful! That looks like something that you'd find in a rock garden, very attractive. Excellent photo, nice composition.
