As usual,the first springtime alert,but the winter seems coming now in my country with a bit of snow and very cold days.

Division: Magnoliophyta
Class: Liliopsida
Order: Asparagales
Family: Amaryllidaceae
Genus: Leucojum
Spring Snowflake (Leucojum vernum) and Summer Snowflake (Leucojum aestivum) are bulbous plants belonging to the Amaryllidaceae family. They are the only species currently classified in the genus Leucojum.The snowflakes are native to southern Europe, from the Pyrenees to Romania and western Russia, but they have been introduced and have naturalized in many other areas, including the east coast of North America. They have narrow, strap-like, dark green leaves. The flowers are small and bell-shaped, white with a green (or occasionally yellow) spot at the end of each petal. They have a slight fragrance.
The Spring Snowflake normally grows 15-20 cm tall (6-8 in), though it may reach up to 35 cm (14 in). It flowers from March to May (as soon as the snow melts in its wild habitat). Two varieties of Leucojum vernum are known: L. vernum var. carpathicum originates from the eastern part of its natural range and is a larger plant with yellowish spots on its petals rather than green; L. vernum var. vagneri from Hungary is a robust plant, often with two flowers per stem.
The Summer Snowflake has a wider natural range, taking in Europe, southwest Asia and northern Iran, and growing in wetter habitats including damp woodland, riversides and swamps. Despite its common name it also flowers from March to May, though slightly later than the Spring Snowflake. It is a taller plant than Leucojum vernum, growing to around 60 cm (2 ft), but its flowers are smaller and are carried in an umbel of between three and seven. Its fleshy seed pods are inflated, allowing them to be dispersed by flood water.

Hi Luciano,
beeaauutiifuul. You really made a statement here: even a simple flower can look great if the photographer knows his stuff. You do, Luciano ! And thanks for the advance you make on spring (It was hard enough for me to come back from the tropics). But ...
Thanks and greetings, Luciano

It is human nature that we start looking from the eyes that is the center and surround the edges and I found this excellent in color and focusing also lighting, beautiful.

nice winter flower, greetings Ori

Hi Luciano,
So, the snowflakes are already blossoming in Italy... In Ireland we just get the extreme cold, which means around -1 Celsius here. :-) But my homeland, Hungary is covered with a massive amount of snow now (at least the mountains). Fantastic photo, the way you find the balance between getting enough light on the subject but not loosing details due to the flash is not something teachable - it should be felt. Is this what's called talent? :-) Yes, it is. Gorgeous composition and light management, eventhough the closer square millimeters of the petals are a little OOF, this is one of your best shots. Hats off for this pic, absolutely the photo of the day for me (even you posted it yesterday, hah). Breathtaking! Bravo!
Kind regards from Ireland, L獺szl籀

Bonjour Luciano,

Le sujet est bien cadr矇. La prise de vue permet d'admirer les d矇tails de la Niv矇ole de printemps. La lumi癡re fait ressortir la beaut矇 des couleurs. La nettet矇 est excellente. Bonne journ矇e.

Pierre

Ciao Luciano, gran bel fiore, magnifica luce, bei colori naturali, ottima la nitidezza e i dettagli, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Salve Luciano,
this is a magnificently well lighted, very powerful presentation of this lovely spring flower. So many subtle shades to be seen in the white petals standing out from a deeply dark background. I like it a lot.
With thanks, and best regards,
Peter
