Taken in the forest near my house.
These were the last flowers for this year and the last opportunity to take some pictures of these beautiful flowers. In this season the flowering species change very rapidly.

from wikipedia:

Anemone nemorosa is an early-spring flowering plant in the Genus Anemone in the family Ranunculaceae. Common names include wood anemone, windflower, European thimbleweed and smell fox. They are perennial herbaceous plants, growing in early spring from 5 to 15 cm tall. Plants start blooming soon after the foliage emerges from the ground, with the leaves parted into three segments and the flowers produced in the middle of the foliage on short stems above the foliage with one flower per stem. The plants grow from underground stems called rhizomes. The plants die back down to the root-like rhizomes by mid summer (summer dormant). The rhizomes spread just below the soil surface, forming long spreading clumps that grow quickly, contributing to its rapid spread in woodland conditions, where they often carpet large areas.

Hi Shir,
Beautiful anemone. Immaculate sharpness and spot-on focus. Perfect light management and nice colours - looks like gold on white. I like your POV to portray the flower and the precise DOF. Very nicely composed. Kudos.
