Hot hot hot!

Went down to the Arava Valley on the hottest day of the year. Participated in a public meeting promoting better conservation of the fragile habitats of the C Arava, organized by NPA. Driving down in the early afternoon, the temperature rocketed up to 47°C, and didn't really drop even after sunset: 

After the presentations we went out to the field. Of course wildlife is not easy to spot in these weather conditions. We had a few Spiny-tailed Lizards basking in the sun:

Amazing that there is fresh germination in this heat - result of the massive floods in early May. This is from KM76:
