Interesting desert species. I found Ophioglossum lusitanicum earlier, only 1-2 cm high.
Fine photo, nice colours, good point of view
very nice and interesting desert flower with good detail and colour.
Hi Ori, super interesting species, in my country the species of Ophioglossum grow in mountain meadows with high humidity. Salut
Now this is something very spectacular! I just love the sight of it, and you surely were very lucky to have seen it. The details are very eye-catching and unique, the colour really pretty. Thanks for sharing a super macro and one that emphasize the words that is so particular to this site "Learning about nature through photography" as up to today I never even knew of the existence of this beautiful desert fern. Best regards.
Interesting plant and nice photo Ori! Excellent composition and good sharpness!
