[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a rather common hemicryptophyte of the dressert and desert edge in Israel. The flowers are quite showy, about 2 cm in diameter. Those of higher elevations in the Negev bloom in white to deep red. In other areas the flowers are pink, as here. The WS shows the entire plant.

Hello Ishi,
Lovely bloom showing exceptional detail and rich natural colors. The bright yellow filament and anther in contrast to the deep pink petals are very beautiful. Exposure is perfect.
