Hepatica acutiloba, Sharp-Lobed Hepatica

Early spring on wooded slopes can be delightful when Hepatica starts emerging. In northeast Indiana, it is flowering abundantly on rich slopes in the Edna Spurgeon Nature Preserve. Normally I take a series of pictures using a variety of camera settings. Several examples are included here; the differences between the latter two are subtle. Life is good, and spring is wonderful!

They look like muppets. Can't you see The Band's hippie chick saying "Like dude, we were hangin' around under the leaves and then, whoa man, the sun came out. Totally radical! Sweet digs!" And beautiful! Thanks!

That's too funny. If only I had some kind of animation software!! Thanks Virginia.
