Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 9 March 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

These are another variety of Snowdrops--the simple ones. I took the picture indoors with natural light using 12mm extension tubes on a 105mm macro lens. Added one of my textures Spring Glow which you can download and use.
