Amazing clarity and focus. Razor sharp details of the petals of this flower. Very nice. As I see you have luck to catch some lovely images in your trip to Israel....
that looks interesting. Quite tricky for us who are not familiar with the rich local flora of spring in the eastern mediterranean and the mideast. At first sight, I thought of some species of flax (linum). But getting closer, I am rather sure that it is
Erodium gruinum (L.)
Long-beaked stork's-bill, crane stork's bill, Iranian stork's bill
Finding them in Israel would well fit into its area of distribution. There is also a website of flowers in Israel that seems to confirm that identification:
Those spreckled leaves in your workshop do not belong to that flower. They should belong to the milk thistle (Marian thistle) Silybum marianum.
I am sure you enjoyed your trip. And it is always a rewarding job to try to identify what we have seen.
With best regards,

Peter has done quite a bit of research to ID this flower from Israel, Ron.
That apart, this is a very beautiful capture of these purple flowers.
The exposure is just perfect and the shot is well composed.
Thanks for showing us a flora picture from your trip.

I believe this is in the Geranium Family, they grow here and in a few different colours where I live. This is probably a different species though a similar. http://plants.usda.gov/plantguide/pdf/pg_gevi2.pdf Super sharp detail and brilliant colour.
