[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This annual Asphodelus is commonly known as "onion weed". It is very wide spread locally and globally. In Israel it is found from the Mediterranean coastal region all the way to the extreme desert areas, as in this case. In some counties, such as India and Pakistan, it is a bad weed that reduces grain crops.

The plant is up to 30 cm tall (see WS). The diameter of the flowers is approx. 15 mm.

Hello Ishi,
Credit goes to you to throw this BG so far, even using f/40. BG plays a critical role in Photography and I like such photograph where Photographer watches BG before clicking Camera button.
Excellent use of light as well as vertical framing, to me too.
Thanks for sharing your work with useful NOTE of this Asphodel species,
