[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Scilla libanotica is one of the least known bulb species, growing only in Lebanon, Syria and N Israel. Its short blooming makes it hard to find. This year I was lucky to see it for the first time in Mt Hermon, naighbouring Hyacinthus.

Hi Ori,

Nice photo of this Scilla plant. Very nice match between the white flowers and the darck background. Very good image of the white petals showing well the texture. Nice contrast too between the blue stamina and the white petals.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Ori

These delicate pale floweres contrasting against the dark BG make such a lovely image. Pin sharp, perfect DOF and perfectly composed



Hello Ori!

I like its simplicity. This is very nice composition of three flowers - great DOF and sharpness. Very well done!
