Dan Creighton from Pottstown, United States

This is so warm and inviting. It adds to the feel of the crocus breaking out of cold ground to warm spring weather (at least it should be warm). Very nice.

Great solution to the problem of photographing these flowers that hug the ground so closely. Your choices convey a wonderful burst of energy.
