[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ceanothus megacarpus (Mountain Lilac) is a Californian species typical for coastal scrub. At the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens we have one shrub, it is not very showy, but the ring flash brings (as usual) its beauty out.

Bonjour Ori, c'est une photo pleine de fraicheur et vous en avez bien besoin dans votre pays! Le fond sombre met bien en valeur la blancheur des délicats pétales. TFS, Didier.

It is beautiful, no doubt Ori, but wouldn't an upside-down composition be better my friend?
