  1. Wow, that is amazing! Posted 8 months ago
  2. Your photos have been featured on JungleDragon's Facebook page today! From the post:

    "Israel has a wonderfully unique flora and is a real treasure when it comes to the diversity of plant species. It boasts approximately 2,700 plant species, including 200 species that occur exclusively in the area of Mt. Hermon. This amazing species richness is due to several factors: Israel has many different habitats, it's a meeting point between geographical regions, it has impressive climatic transitions, and the topography favors plant diversity. JungleDragon user, Dr. Ori Fragman-Sapir, is a botanist, the director of the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens, a scientific editor, and an author. His work inspires and educates others concerning plant conservation and the flora of South West Asia. The exceptional beauty of the flora in this region of the world is easily seen through the gorgeous photos that Ori has kindly shared on JungleDragon! Enjoy! #JungleDragon"
