Hepatica Bud

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 4 April 2009 in Plant & Nature.

I'm starting my wildflower images for this year. This little bud was peeking out of the leaves 1 1/2 weeks ago at a wildflower preserve near my house. Not a great image, but, it is my first photo of a Hepatica.

Such a smart composition! Very original. And, as usual, the background emphasizes the wash of color.

just lovely Anita - the bokeh makes this shot - very moody, rainy and a burst of color meaning Spring is here!!

I think the soft focus is great - it serves to accentuate the furry texture of the subject!

I like the clarity of the hairs on the cracked open bud. Great macro, Anita.
