These are flowers of one of our rarest desert shrublets. In S Israel it occurs in 2-3 sites only. In Egypt (S Sinai Highlands) it is much commoner.

thank you for sharing. i am seeing this for the first time. a great specimen for future.

Cool presentation of this flower again ,but this time i think that the sharpness of the image is ....perhaps too moderate! fine colors and composition!

Hello Ori

Very nice composition af this never seen before (for me) plant. Bravo and TFS


Hallo Ori
Moderate? Sorry George but I do not agree, but letís leave it there. The flowers are very fine and delicate and it almost looks fragile. Now, I am not so clued up with all the parts of a flower, and what I see here is petals and anthers, but what to one call the ruby parts right in the inside of the flower? Looking at this image, and in my personal opinion I only see calmness and peace and angles, resembled by the flowers. Thanks for sharing this rare flower. It was a pleasure to appreciate it for its fine qualities. Best regards.

Hello Ori,

good pov, dof and bg.
I think the flowers can be sharper.


Hi Ori,
this flower is wonderful. The colour is amazing and you captured it with a nice dark BG. I had to think of you this weekend because I found a flower which I never saw before. Now I know it is Ornithogalum umbellatum - very rare here in Europe as I read in the Internet.
