[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Blepharis sindica is a desert perennial plant. Stems hairy. It has shy but beautiful blue flowers that are hidden within spiny spikes. The sikes flower bracts are beautiful as well and remind its realtive - Acanthus. The fruit is a haieless shiny brown capsule. Capsules are kept in the dry spikes for ears untull there is enough rain for germination, when they will be dispersed.

Hello Ori,
you are still here with all your plants and flowers and this time from India.
The plant seems very dry. The picture is aharp with good details and almost in grey shades, nice.
Well done.

Hello Ori,
You have captured the withered remains of this desert plant in fine detail. Nicely shown with just the right exposure and in an attractive composition. Your description of its flowers made me curious, so I had to check them out on the web. You were right, they are quite lovely!!
