[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The common snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) is the best-known representative of a small ge-nus of about 20 species in the family Amaryllidaceae that are among the first bulbs to bloom in spring. Snowdrops should not be confused with their relatives snowflakes, Leucojum species; leucojums are much larger and flower in spring (or early summer, depending on the spe-cies), with all six petals in the flower the same size, though it should be noted that some "po-culiform" (slipper-shaped) Galanthus can have inner segments similar in length to the outer ones.

A bit light and shade could bring more beauty as the white are washed, charming.

Hello Olgierd,
A very attractive presentation of these pretty Common Snowdrops. This early spring plant is completely filled with beautiful white blooms. Focus is sharp and colors are vivid yet natural. I like the framing and soft lighting which shows this flowering plant off very nicely. TFS.
