[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fagonia is a desert genus common in the Saharo-Arabian deserts as well as in America. Fagonia tenuifolia was collected just a few times in Israel. Yesterday i found it near the coast of the dead sea. i was very much excited to see this species, since I thought it was doubtful in Israel.

Lovely shot! Excellent sharpness and very good colors. TFS.

Hi Ori,
a wonderful document of this fragile, gently colourful rare blossoming plant, with its colours contrasting so nicely to the blue sky. An image filled with pleasant sunshine, a real pleasure to look at and enjoy. My congratulations you have found it and pictured it so well! Thank you.
My best regards,
