HEPATICA NOBILIS

Common Hepatica, Kidneywort
Leberblümchen
Anémone hépatique

Family: Ranunculaceae
Tribus: Anemoneae
Distribution: Northern hemisphere
Habitat: Woods
Hight: 10-25cm

This fine purple Hepatica has a lifespan of just one week (the bloom).

The violet colors of the petals is given by the presence of Anthocyan which has the property to transform light in heat, which is a protection for the flower in colder days.

These flowers are blooming just at the moment. Spring has arrived on time.

Bonjour Anne

D'abord je veux dire je m'en excuse tu avais une critique à ma photo
mais voulant éditer en donnant le bon titre que j'avais écris a fait que
on a perdu la photo de la gallérie, le bug c'est dans mon titre j'avais
mis des guillemets et point d'exclamation et sa ne fonctionne pas,
j'ai repris la photo sans guillemets et point d'exclamation.

Une jolie photo de fleurs de fin d'hiver, nous on a encore beaucoup
de neige au sol, il faudra encore quelques semaines avant que la
neige parte pour de bon, la lumière latérale qui viens dans l'image
est très jolie et met en valeur les pétales des fleurs, TFS

Hello Anne,
What a lovely sight to see at this time of the year when everything is still brown, black and gray in the fields. The bright violet colors are gorgeous and you managed to capture excellent detail. Exposure is perfect and I really like the framing. Very good DOF and taken from an attractive low POV. Well done!!
Ron

Bonjour Anne,
Un superbe bouquet bien composé dans une lumière bien maitrisée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Liebe Anne,
in höheren, schattigen Lagen sind sie bei uns in diesen Tagen noch zahlreich zu finden. An manchen Stellen in unserer Umgebung haben die Leberblümchen heuer schon im Februar ihre blauvioletten Köpfchen gezeigt. Der Farbkontrast der zarten Blüten zu ihren ledrig immergrünen Blättern mit erdfarben-rötlicher Unterseite macht diese Blume für mich besonders reizvoll. Er kommt in Deiner Aufnahme besonders gut zur Geltung. Und die Blütenblätter in ihrem so schwierig darstellbaren zarten Blau leuchten uns bei Dir strahlend aus dem Waldesdunkel entgegen. Du zeigst auch Ehrfurcht vor den natürlichen Gegebenheiten, indem Du die ins Bild ragenden Zweige und Ästchen stehen lässt.
Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss nach Bern,
Peter
