Good morning my friends - I have a wonderful message for you - spring is also coming here in Bavaria ;-)
We still have snow - but it melted now at some parts of the grass in my garden - and surprise surprise, the first snowdrops are outside, they realy can grow covered with snow, that's amazing.
So everything is still wet - but it's fantatic to see again something green outside, something fresh, something that is living ... after that hard and long winter.

Enjoy the sunday - go outside - feel the life ...

Hi Sabine.

A fine capture with splendid colors and the drops on it makes it perfect.

Hello Sabine,
this can not the true,if I look out throw my window, I only can see snow around 1 meter high ;-( the spring up here will very late this year.
The picture is well exposed and you have used the flash well,
no hard contrast and shadows. It's also well composed with a good POV.
Well done, mf.


Hallo Sabine
der Frühling kommt schliesslich überall hin, auch in Bayern, dieses Blümchen zeigt den Weg
das Bild ist erste Klasse, so sharf und deutlich, der grüne hintergrund ist einfach perfekt und die wasser Tröpfchen machen den Unterschied zwichen ein gutes und ein hervoragendes Bild
Grüsse Jacqueline

You are a genius when it comes to images of suspended water drops, Sabine.
This picture is a class apart in terms of aesthetics involved in nature photography.
Well done and I am happy the signs of spring have started showing themselves in Germany.

Very lovely closeup of this flower with water drops, very simple but effective one. tfs.

Liebe Sabine!

Vielen Dank für die frohe Botschaft! Du hast ein wunderschönes Bild geschaffen, ein echter Aufsteller im grauen und stürmischen Frühlingswetter. Die Tröpfchen sind wunderbar und gleichen eher Perlen, die man berühren möchte.

As liebs Grüessli

Hello Sabine,
Fantastic photo. The waterdrops on the Snowflake are amazing. They work like magnifying-glasses. I can see the details even better now. The colours in this photo are splendid. The soft green BG completes it all. Taken from a perfect POV. A real beauty!

Bonjour Sabine,
J'ai rencontré ces premiers sujets hier en me promenant dans les collines bourguignones mais la mauvaise lumière ne m'a pas fait regretter l'oubli (volontaire) de mon appareil photographique !!!
Très belle macro bien composée, finement détaillée et délicatement colorée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Wishnu,
This is a picture simple and complex at the same time! Simple because the flower, its cadence colors and lines that are simple and elegant. Complex due to overlapping droplets of moisture on the petals, which delivers to a variety of photo light and pleasing to the eye reflexes. Very good job, very artistic!

Guten Abend Sabine,
Prächtige und das Makro von dir!
Und vor allem Ihre POV ist ausgezeichnet. Die Wassertropfen sind eine wohlverdiente Bonus.

Ein schöner Abend,

Hello Wishnu,
What a delight to see that spring is finally arriving. We still have plenty of snow on the ground here in Ohio, but it is slowly melting away. Super fine detail in this wonderful macro shot. Gorgeous natural colors!! The water droplets are a real bonus!

Hello Sabine,
A lovely capture of this first sign of spring - here too! It's been the worst winter we've had for a very long time here so the first signs of spring are really apprecited.
Your macro shot here is really brilliant with the droplets looking very decorative on the dainty Snowdrop. Excellent focus and wonderful colours too. Very well done!
TFS and have a nice weekend, Ulla
