DESERT BROOMRAPE - יחנוק

Two weeks ago I posted some photos and information about a very interesting plant growing here in the desert, by the Hebrew name of Yachnuk יחנוק. (Scroll down to see it!) 
Yesterday we found a wonderful video clip by Mori Chen about this plant. I got permission from Mori to put the link to his video here. It is in Hebrew, but even if you don't understand Hebrew it is worth while to watch it. Thank you Mori!

That is one amazing growing thing. I wanted to write: “that is one amazing flower” but since the earth “births” it so dramatically, it seems to defy the definition of a flower. What a beautifully done video tribute.

Yael, that's pretty incredible! I wonder how they smell--sweet?
