Spring Pasque-flower
Anémone du printemps

Family: Ranunculaceae
Genus: Pulsatilla
Size: 5-15cm

This beautiful flower can be found in Europe in mountain areas, especially in the Alps. In Germany this flower is on the Red List, cat. 1.
In my region Pulsatilla vernalis is not seldom, but we have to take care of its habitat.
There are several species of Pulsatillas, I have already shown some others (pink, purple, and yellow).
Pulsatilla vernalis is the first Pasque Flower to appear after wintertime. It has a very hairy appearance and its petals are white with some purple or blueish stripes.
I found this very young specimen on my meadow, trying to held its little head towards the sun.

This is among the wonders of nature, Anne.
Anemones grow out of the moist earth after the snow melt in the Himalayas too.
This is a beautiful specimen with white petals and yellow core. I see a blue one too in the OOF BG.
A beautiful capture, indeed.

Ciao Anne, superb composition with lovely flower, splendid light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Anne. You must know where to look for the little flowers. This Anémone du printemps is a little beauty. Which you have taken with fine detail and colour. The low POV is just right for this picture. well done TFS.

Bonsoir Anne,
You found a great BG to show off this Pulsatilla vernalis to the best effect, In addition, the sharpness and lighting are great to make this a well composed and atractive portrait of this spring flower.

Ciao Anne,
bellissima immagine di Pulsatilla, mi piacciono molto il punto di ripresa basso e il forte contrasto di luce che contribuiscono a questa splendida composizione.
Grazie e complimenti
Con amicizia

Hi Anne,
so graphic with the subject position at the coenwer. the dark background work effectively to give strength and contrast.
the clarity is excellent with hairs well seen under a very good selcted source of light.
well positioned and well composed to give the beauty its best.


Bonjour Anne,
C'est évidemment bien composé et l'angle de prise de vue est excellent, mais c'est surtout la maitrise et l'exploitation de la lumière qui donne à ta publication une touche artistique.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
