[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
First signs of spring on wild plants. After the snow melts away the first ones that seem to wake up are the small lichens and tiny plants.
This tiny plant (3-4mm tall) was growing in rock cracks near the sea - in direct view of the spring sunshine.
I am not sure which plant that is - help is welcome.

Hello Shir,
First signs of spring are always appreciated :-)
I believe the plant belongs to genus Sedum.
Very nice colours and excellent low POV.
Best greetings and TFS,

Hi Shir,
Excellent macro!
I like a lot the uncomong plant and the "landscape" seen with the others on the background, it looks like very particular, like a kind of jungle.
Very good the clear and sharp details got on the plant.
I like a lot the DOF and how you played with it.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hi Shir

Wow, i feel the son in this shot. perfect position with nice details. I like the green BG. nice shot.


Beautiful Macro shot, vivid colours, and fantastic sharpness! Very well done! Thanks for sharing :)


Muy buenas Shir

Magnífica macro.
Los detalles son excelentes así como el colorido de la escena.
Saludos amigo.

Hi Shir,

Light source is absolutely nice. Exposure and macro are great.
