    Early (or late) blooms

    In the hills of the north of Israel(all with CL 35/1.4):

    This grows in several places. A particularly good crop is just above the Jordan river.

    The "mighty" Jordan River, most of the time is not mighty at all. Here's a placid stretch:

    but check out You Tube for some impressive spring flooding (downstream from this part).

    Leica CL with the 55-135 wide open

    In a brief visit to the Hula wildlife reserve with a largeish group, late in the afternoon, we saw large flocks of cranes in their migration from Europe to their winter quarters in Africa. Conditions for photography were pretty bad -- shooting nearly straight into the sun and at a fair distance from the fields where the flocks settled down -- but the AF was right on target more than half the time using single shot spot focus, and there were lots of opportunities to shoot. One example:

    What kind of a plant is that?

    I had to ask to get the right spelling of the name in Hebrew. We call it חצב or Hatsav, and the English seems to be SeaSquill. It grows from a very large bulb, starting in winter, reaches a meter or so high with most of its growth in late summer, and blooms in the last days of summer, when few other plants are in flower. It's common, but for most of the year you would never notice it. Here's the family tree:

    Urginea, named for an Arabian tribe in Algeria, known as Ben Urgin.
    maritima, growing by the sea.
    Drimia, Greek δριμύς, -εῖα, -ύ (adj). = acrid, pungent, referring to the bulbs which can irritate the skin.

    And it grows in all sorts of natural areas, but was traditionally planted in Arab graveyards.

    The Egyptians call the plant "Ein Sit", the god who resists the sun, since the plant only blooms in autumn.
