Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.

    You’d get a mighty wet tummy if you tried that during this rain.

    This is a perfect image and quote for me today, Cherry, since we saw our first snowdrops of the season while in Münster over the weekend. Happy Monday.

  4. They’re already out?! ;)

  5. liz says:

    Beautiful. I’ve been meaning to take a photo of our snowdrops but you take such good ones.

    I never find snowdrops easy to photograph for some reason. These are exquisite, and a delight to the eye, Cherie

      Thank you :-)

      Snowdrops need a little bit of patience. You have to visualise the effect you want to achieve and then experiment with the camera settings/lenses until you achieve that effect.

      Experimenting can provide some unexpected but pleasing results :-)
