[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While our current blooming season has been very late this year, O. israelitica is almost on schedule. These pix were taken yesterday in the Lower Galilee (Mt. Tour’an, 550 m a.s.l., about 50 km from Haifa). This endemic species is small: The plant is just 10-15 cm tall; the flowers less than 10 mm in size.

See the WS for the plant and some buds, too.

Hello Ishi,
Beautiful colour and good details of this Orchid. Well DOF. I think bit different angle (not POV) could have been more attractive where you could get total clear BG.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nicevWE,

Hello Ishi,
A wonderful close-up of this gorgeous orchid. Very good detail and eye catching colors. I like the way we can clearly see the texture of the petals. Well done!!
