Antirrhinum Majus (Snapdragon, or in Dutch: Leeuwenbek) is a species of plants belonging to the genus Antirrhinum. It is native to the Mediterranean region, from Morocco and Portugal north to southern France, and east to Turkey and Syria. The common name “Snapdragon”, originates from the flowers’ reaction to having their throats squeezed, which causes the “mouth” of the flower to snap open.

Spotted on a roof in Dubrovnic, Croatia (Hrvatska), during a walk along the old city walls.
