This is a very interesting mix of plants.. if one is dead another will take its place. Very well shown with this large view on this vegetation-mélange and wonderful to see these Orchis blooming there.
Very well seen and good explanations

You have a very interesting way of photographing flowers. Not the normal low POV and isollation of the flower, but a more top down approach showing the habitat it lives in. Maybe it does not give you the beautiful details of the actual flower, it does give a good natural impression of how a flower is situated.

That is the wonderful way of Nature; the remains of one become the food or home for another. I like how you have drawn our attention to this natural phenomenum and presented evidence so clearly in your detailed shot.

A fine capture of thesetwo orchids growing through the tangle of dead stems and herbs, which makes an excellent portrayal of how they grow in nature during the spring in Palestine. The sharpness and colours are superb.
Thanks and thanks for yor kind words on my 600th!

This is a fine study of contrasts. Living and dead. Young and aged. Purples, yellows, oranges, greens and absence of color. Just wonderful. Another one of your always superb and unusual compositions.
