[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Urginea maritima, Sea Squill, is the most common 'harbinger of autumní in our area, blooming starting in August, long before the first winter rains. It, like all those early bloomers, will grow its leaves only after the first rains.

This stand of many flowers was recorded just off the Si'on stream, one of the three major tributaries of the Jordan River. Note plants in different stages of bloom. The lower flowers of the inflorescence bloom first, making their way to the top. A couple of plants in the center bear already green fruit.

Hello Ishi,
At first I thought this was taken under water - the tall flowers are so amazing! I like the composition and the fine focus and beautiful colours against the brown background. Very beautiful!
Many thanks and best regards, Ulla
