[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the five species of Echium we have in Israel, this is the tallest; can reach over one meter of height. The flowers are rather small, about 6 mm in diameter, but quite colorful when examined close-by. This one was taken in the northern Golan Heights in early May, when the landscape turned already dry.

Hi Ishi

Thank you for sharing this shot of a very interesting echium. Lovely, subtle colours on the plant and background. Good clear detail too.



Hi Ishi, I really like this plant, amazing "architecture" to it, so many colours and shapes, very good image, tfs and best regards h

Bonjour Ishi,
C'est bien composé dans un cadrage serré mettant bien en valeur les couleurs et les détails du sujet ; il manque, peut-être, un peu de luminosité mais ce serait sdurement au détriment de la pilosité de la tige.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

  • Great

Very beautiful shot Dear Ishi. We have echium vulgare with rather bluish flowers. They go fine in salads!
