[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a delicate, very beautiful desert annual. it is common in the Dead Sea area. You can see the sterile radial flowers that are advertizing the whole flowering head and the fertile inner ones. In the fertile flowers you can see how the forked purple style is pushing out the white pollen like toothpaste.

Biverakhot mikerev lev friend!


Hallo Ori
I agree with you that this is indeed a very beautiful and delicate flower. The detail is remarkable. The three shades of purple, the yellow and the white pollen makes an excellent combination. The detail of the hair is emphasized even better with the dark background you have used. A well focused, well framed and super sharp photo. I have added this special flower to my purple theme. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

I'm thinking over f/51.0 thus I know much about f/32 but not knowledge of f/51 and may this be some special lens that can creat the father of DOF as here I can see, TFS.

Una maravillosa y delicada planta Ori.
Buenos detalles y excelente bg.
Saludos, Jl.

Hello Ori,

Very good POV. Excellent sharpness. Wonderful colours. Excellent dark background to emphasize this beauty.

Hello Ori,
This is amazingly beautiful flower you have captured so superbly. Thank you.

Hi Ori,
This is a marvelous capture of the cactus flower. I am not expert in flower photography. But as per my personal taste I think a bit of leaf with the flower could have been more attractive. Any way excellent composition and details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Ori,
Great macro with excellent details. Olmost black BG help you to show details. Welll done. TFS, Regards,
