  1. Great shot, Ori! Posted 7 months ago
  2. Ori, I'd like to share this on JungleDragon's Facebook page, but am confused about what the photo shows. Are the red things the fruits, with the flowers not being shown in this photo? I can't find any info online about this species, lol! Posted 6 months ago
  3. Yes, these r fruits. They are wind dispersed when they become dry. This is a rare and least known species. Posted 6 months ago
    1. Thanks, Ori. Posted 6 months ago
  4. From today's Facebook post:

    Looks like flowers, right? Well, they are not! These are actually the fruits of Caroxylon canescens. This rare shrublet has tiny, inconspicuous flowers and larger winged, flower-like fruits that are dispersed by the wind when they dry out. {Spotted in Majdal Shams by JungleDragon moderator, Ori Fragman-Sapir} #JungleDragon #Caroxyloncanescens #Caroxylon #MountHermon
