[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Cyclamen persicum is a common and protected plant in Israel, recently it was elected as our national flower. It blooms in winter-spring and the pending flowers are protecting the pollen from rain. The large cultivated cyclamen which u see in flower shops and nurseries are all originating from this species.

Hello Ori,
I like all Cyclamen species. They are very common in my hometown Black Sea in spring. But here (Central Anatolia), I dont see them in nature. In buildings they are very common as ornament flowers.
this is beautiful species and your macro great and high clarity and superb colorations.
TFS, well done

Fine picture of these Cyclamens, lovely light and colors.
Very good contrasting dark background.
Here in Norway, the cultivated Cyclamen is a common plant in our homes, and looks very similar too.

Hi Ori,
Very sharp and well exposed picture. TFS.
