Hello again my friends ...
And it's still a dream that it will be spring now.
Last night it was snowing again, now it's again white everywhere ...

The only thing I can do is looking to my shots of last springtime ... and I found this one for you.

Some freshness - you know, I love drops - and inside them:

Wild Myosotis - (from the Greek: "mouse's ear", after the leaf) is a genus of flowering plants in the family Boraginaceae that are commonly called Forget-me-nots.
Its common name was calqued from the French, "ne m'oubliez pas" and first used in English in 1532. Similar names and variations are found in many languages.
For example in German: Vergiss-mein-nicht.

How do you call it in your language, if it's not English, French or German?

Thanks for any kind words

Sabine

I think I don't have to say here on TN that there's NO PP-work in that shot, the reflection inside the drops is real ...

Hi Sabine
Another fantastic capture in "wishnugaruda" style!
Wonderful myosotis in the reflection of this great drops of water.
Congratulation!
Horia

Hallo Sabine!

Ich muss dieses Bild in meine Favoritensammlung aufnehmen. Ganz besonders freut mich, dass ich dies ohne Zwang z.B. als Folge einer Widmung tun kann. Ich kann eigentlich nicht viel mehr sagen, als dass mir das Bild besonders gut gefällt und dass ich von den Vergissmeinnichtblüten, gefangen in kristallklaren Wassertröpfchen, begeistert bin. Dein Bild weckt Emotionen und ist zudem so symbolträchtig: wir warten darauf, dass die Tropfen platzen und die Frühlingsboten in die Freiheit entlassen...

Liebe Grüsse

Markus

Hello Sabine,
Oh, the amazing photo.
Regards
Lucja

Hello Sabine,
What a dream! Very poetic capture, fantastic composition. I like the contradiction between the bouquets of myosostis and the big myosotis on the background. A great artistic work my friend! I wish you a good night with a lot of spring dreams!
Catherine

Hallo Sabine.

Yo have done here a very artistic work with drops. Myosotises are the most beautiful flowers on the world, in my opinion. I remember a story, a sadly story from past about these flowers.

We call them as "unutma beni (means: forget-me-not)" or "sevda çiçeği (means love flower)"

Bravo and TFS meine Freundin. Grüße aus der Türkei.
Fevzi

Sabine
Great capture again!
Lovely drops of water with this wonderful myosotis.
Congratulation!

Hi Sabine

Another amazing shot from your collection. These reflections are very nice to view, even if your weather is not the best. I was hoping to get out this weekend, but the forecast here is for a wet weekend....
Excellent composition, sharpness and peresentation.

Hi Sabine.
It is great. Once more masterpiece from you. Only you can work with water drops with such art manner. How many flowers we can see in them. Green carpet as a stage for these pearls is amazing as well as flower canvas behind them. Bravo. Fantastic.

hello Sabine

in the droplets i see that soon it will be spring !
i love your low POV at their level, the superb DOF,
and the flowers in the droplets, vivement le printemps !

Hallo Sabine
This is a great image which leaves lots to the imagination and one can dream a lot of dreams looking inside of each water droplet. I do not think it is necessary to repeat what has already been said by all the people which visited this image prior to me. It is fantastic work, not only for the artistic side to it, but also for the perfect camerawork and the great end result. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Anna

Ciao Sabine. A winner POV's chopise wit fantastic and detailed flower's reflections. Indeed a delicate ane refined building.

Ciao Maurizio

Hallo Sabine,

About the quality and the visual impact of this photo: after checking it out I bookmarked You as a favorite photographer. If these words aren't enough: the image is fantastic, unique, breathtaking and almost unbelievable. A once-in-a-lifetime capture. One of the best images on TrekNature.

Hungarian name of this flower, "nefelejcs" also means "don't forget me" (= forget-me-not), so it seems like many languages adopted the French formula.

Have a nice weekend, I wish You spring, László

I am 18 months late, hence the spring is long gone and winter starting again.

Very artistic presentation.
