[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Every year we are amazed again and again from the Sternbergia flowers. This is a protected bulb in Israel, it is rather rare, found in patches all over the eastern parts of the country. During its blooming time, its sites are places of pilgrim for nature lovers. The huge flowers are visited by many insects that are attracted to the scents secreted in small glands, found at the petal's tips.

Hello Ori,
Very pretty flowers to find this time of the year, resemble little crocus blooms. Very sharp focus and rich colors. The natural lighting is quite lovely and your low POV worked out nicely in this instance.
