What an amazing plant! I had never heard of these genus before, a parasitic plant with no chlorophyll!
You also captured the landscape perfectly, with great depth of field.
Thanks for sharing!

Hello Ori,
A fine capture of this impressive parasitic plant in flower.
Great to see it in its habitat and how it forced its way through the soil. Excellent sharpness, DOF and colours.
Thanks and kind regards,

Nice group of this Cistanche! regards Yiannis

Outstanding capture of this beautiful plants. TFS

Incredible image! I like this one very much Ori. The distant background really adds to this subject in a very complimentary way. It's like nothing can stop beauty, not even the hard crust of the earth no matter how delicate it is. Well done.

Lovely specimen! Excellent use of very short focal-length imaging.

Enjoy the far south!
