Very nice pic. Good action shot. The colours are exquisite in it's natural setting. Thanks for posting. I never even knew they existed.
Well Done

Its so refeshing to see that Israel has wildlife. All we ever hear about (in Australia)is the troubles with its neighbours.
A great action shot, the composition and deatil is really good, well done.

Good job Eyal! These creatures are very shy and they run away as soon as they spot you.

I have to admit I am very pleasantly surprised to see Israel have such rich and wonderful fauna, I agree we definatelly need a break from what most images look like when they come from this part of the world... Wish I knew more about the wildlife of Israel when I lived in Europe, so close but so different from Eastern Europe in instance... It is superior to the north African countries i1ve seen nevermind the climate and geography is similar...
Carry on, good chap !
