[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The young flower has it lip rolled, before it unfold (see previous pic. This rare orchid grows in a few localilities in the Upper Galilee and the Golan Heights, and in Lebanon. It blooms after all other flowers dry, its own leaves are also dry already. Its always a great excitement to see it again.

Hello Ori,
What an amazing shape this flower has. Reminds me of some chameleon. Very subtle picture.
Have a nice day

Hi Ori,

What an amazing flower this is. You captured it really well. Well done.


Très belle macro, belle composition.

Simplemente fantástica________ que maravilla. La naturaleza no deja de sorprendernos y aquí lo has plasmado bien con esta curiosa orquídea. Saludos

Very nice composition, with lovely contrast and colours.
Beautiful shapes captured.
I would have cropped a bit tighter at the right, but only a personal taste.
Thanks and regards.
