[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This desert parasite is relatively rare (the yellow C. tubulosa is commoner, look at my previous pics). I always thought that this species occurs is salty locations, but found it this time is a sandy area near Nizzana on the Israel-Egypt border. Its robust inflorescences are in complete contrast to this arid place.

Hi Ori

Great shot - I especially like it because I saw a lot of these - or similar - in Morocco last week. I was not sure what they were exactly.

Hello Ori,
Fine capture showing this beautiful flower growing out of what looks like very harsh conditions, thanks for sharing.

Hi Ori,
A great composition of this rare and interesting species, thanks to teach it.

Hello Ori,
Another wonder from the world of plants!!!
They look amaizng, especially with these pieces of hard soil around. They really had to struggle to emerge :-)
Best greetings,

Hi Ori,
These ones are very big and tall - must be for the rains you had this year.

I have posted the same plant as one of my first posts on TN - much smaller...

Hi Ori,
Beautiful parasite and very strong: it has broken sand to rise! Great details and beautiful light.

Extremely interesting! Thank you very much for showing us these unusual and rare plants.

Bonsoir Fragman,
Ton image replace cette espèce fascinante dans son milieu. Le paysage est désertique et on se demande quelles racines cette plante arrive à trouver pour se développer.

Impresionante y muy bonita. Aquí hay especies similares pero de forma más cilíndrica. Belleza.
