[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the time of waiting for the true spring (I mean, full with flowers and warm weather) and for my first macro lens (Thanks Catherine D for helping me with her pictures to decide myself quite fast) I had to dig again to my archives

I was intending to post this image long time ago, but I never did it. I said that now is the time. Maybe because was taken last year, also in march, are three flowers, like the third month of the year, is a spring species (Leucojum vernus, close related with snow drops).
Taken in Gent Botanical Garden.

Also, I would like to be a dedication to all my lady colleagues from TN.

Hello Oana,
very nice capture of there Leucojum vernus, one of sign of spring, in third March. green of leaves nicely contrasted with their white and yellow parts. fine focus and POV/DOF. coloration and composition also nice.
Thanks for sharing and have a good week,

Lovely arrangement of Leucojum vernum, in German we call it Märzenbecher, first part of the word from the month März, march when it is growing.
I like it, Oana, very well done.

Dear Oana!

I'm glad that you have decided to post this picture. It's an original idea to present the three flowers in the third month, and moreover a typical spring flower. We all are glad to see the spring knocking at the door.

Kind regards

Hello Oana,
There are a lot of Snowdrop photos these days on TN. But this is an orginal one. Excellent composition. Very nice natural colours, good sharp details and POV. Beautiful contrasting dark BG.

Hello MF Oana,
Thanks for the dedication! Ladies first also in my critiques today... because of Women Day! I like very well your composition with 3 beautiful Leucojom vernus. Colour and contrast are very good.
I'm waiting for your first post with a macro lens. I'm sure you will enjoy it! You will discover a new world... All the best,

Hello Oana,
A very welcoming sight for this dreary time of the year. Your photo reminds me that spring is just around the corner. I am not at all familiar with this particular flower, but they is very beautiful and have a unique shape. TFS.

Bonjour Oana,
La profondeur de champ ne me paraît pas optimale, mais la bonne composition met bien les sujets en valeur.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Buna Oana,

Foare inspirat titlul si foarte interesanta compozitie. Bravo. Parca ar canta toti cu aceeasi voce venirea primaverii. Vineri cand am ajuns la tara inca se mai vedeau ghioceii proaspeti in gradina, dar a venit din nou zapada si au disparut. Sper sa se topeasca mai repede, nu mai am rabdare. Noroc de arhiva.

Numai bine, Cezar.
