|It's a small crop of a bigger picture. Actually, I like the big one but in order to show the flower in focus in good details, I cropped it. |
This flowers live in Artova near rocks at the top of hills. I don't know the exact name. If someone know its name, it's very nice he or she inform me.

Very nice photo of this very nice Plant!
Paronychia is a genus of plants in the pink family with over 110 species worldwide, mostly from warm-temperate North America, Eurasia, South America and Africa. They are herbs that are annual or biennial or perennial in life span. Some species have a woody base. For the most part they have small, white to yellow-white colored flowers that are often hidden with in the paired bracts.
I do not know what the name of the flower is, but I can tell you that it is very, very beautiful and the flowers are so delicate. It looks like rolled up tissue paper, and also looks very fragile. I think it must be an awesome sight to see this in real. It is a pity it does not show so well on the thumbnail as I am sure many people are going to miss these special flowers because they did not open and see it in a larger version. I like it a lot, it is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
hello ahmet, great habitat shot, from fantastic plants...thanks
