Hello Ori,
Very interesting fruiting plant you have presented to us. Super sharp focus allowing us to view both plant and fruit in excellent detail. I like the vertical composition as well as the tape measure in the corner which allows us to see the size of the fruit. Is the melon edible? Funny, but I'm eating a cantaloupe as I view your photo:)
