Hello,

I took this video ( https://youtu.be/gDSaIjvNzsc ) in Yakom nature reserve in Israel, which located near Israeli coastal plain. This nature reserve with a lake, and various species of animals including unique birds, as well as vegetation, wild flowers, especially during blossoming season (March, April and May, usually). I've visited there and I already identified all of the animals, but as the beautiful wild flowers wasn't recognized yet I would be happy for your assistance in order to add it to the description. Thank you :-)

Hi TheAlligator, Welcome to All Things Plants. Nice video!

There are a couple of flowers at the beginning of the video that look a bit familiar. I'm not certain but compare them to:

Tassel Hyacinth (Leopoldia comosa)

Lilac Tasselflower (Emilia sonchifolia)

I cannot help to identify any of the blooms but here is a site with wildflowers of Israel which includes a "blooming now" section.

There was another one in the video that I believe is some variety of Thistle (Cirsium)
