Hello Ori,
Another fine looking image of the Date Palm. A neat looking BG which makes the trees really stand out. You did well on the exposure considering the harsh lighting you had to deal with.

Hello Master,
It reminds me of the areas in Sulaiman range that visited where there people collect the male powder and spread on female flowers and I asked why this they said the male are on opposite side that wind can't blow to female flowers, my LORD knows its creation, nice catch.

Beautiful presentation, Ori. Nice natural habitat photograph.
Thanks and regards,
