[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last August in Israel was the hottest on record. But there are signs that the end of the heat is near. One of the them is the beautiful flowers of Pancratium maritimum ("Sea Daffodil"; Amaryllidaceae), one of the early bloomers of the new flowering season, starting now in the last days of summer. These showy flowers grow by the Mediterranean Sea, exposed to the salty spray of sea water.

This specimen is shown under the light of the setting sun, on the background of the beach sand.
