[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Iris haynei, Mt. Gilbo’a iris, is another oncocyclus iris found in Israel. Compare to I. nazarena, www.treknature.com/gallery/photo199982.htm). One finds these flowers on Mt. Gilbo’a, forming the northern border of Samaria. The flower is quite big, with petals up to 7 cm long. It is endangered due to loss of habitat (and too many visitors to the nature reserve).

Image taken under very bright morning sunshine. Not cropped; slightly contrast- and brightness-adjusted; reduced in size and sharpened for TN.

Hello Ishi,
A superb full-frame capture of this beautiful threatened species of Iris. Technically this is first class and taken in fine lighting to show it up well against the OOF natural BG.
Thanks and have a good weekend,
