[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Every time I see this flower, I'm amazed. It is a desert parasite that grows near chenopods shrublets, from which it gets nutrients. The young inflorescences miraculously break the desert dry soil and emerge.

Dear Ori!

I can understand that you are amazed. This picture shows a surprising flower that seems to come from nowhere. Moreover, its a beautiful plant and your picture renders this very well.

Hi Ori

Bonjour Ori,
Très intéressante publication qui pourrait nous faire croire, sans ton commentaire, que cette splendide fleur se contente de peu de chose pour séduire. Le sujet est bien valorisé malgré, me semble-t-il, un peu de surexposition sur l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
