[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Astragalus sparsus is a perennial herbaceous plant of the extreme desert. It has typical creeping stems and beautiful clusters of yellow flowers. In S Israel it reaches its northern range and therefore locally it is very rare endangered. We found this plant in a dry canal north of the town of Eilat

Hi Ori
I like how the light outlined the leaves and illuminated the flowers. Very effective from low POV and an angle that eliminated the direct light. Great colour and detail. Super exposure to hold shadow detail.
Thanks for sharing
Best regards

Hi Ori
Another carefully executed botanical portrait, with the back-lighting perfectly accentuating the fine hairs of the Astralagus plant. The only thing I would change would be to try to "lose" the burned-out area of sky from the composition.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hi Ori
very pretty glow and exciting hairy details. The use of incoming light gives a different beauty to the petals and leaves.
Nice view.

Hello Ori,
Well seen this beautiful Astragalus shown with backlight. The plant looks quite alike our A. exscapus., which is also very rare.
Have a nice Sunday
