Celandine 2008-03-16 - Lesser Celandine
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/160 - 250s, f8
-------------------------------------------
In April you find yellow "carpets" of Lesser Celandine, Ranunculus ficaria. There are not that many around yet, but there will be. They are quite difficult to photograph, especially in sunlight, because of their shiny petals. These are a few of those I found today

Anemone 2008-03-16 - Wood Anemone
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/80s, f8
-------------------------------------------
Wood Anemone, Anemone nemorosa, is a well known and loved sight in spring. Especially i April when they cover large areas of the ground like white carpets. You can find lots of them in Pålsjö Forest which is where I found these.

Glory 2008-03-14 - Glory-of-the-snow
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/80 - 1000s, f6,3 (last two) - 7,1
-------------------------------------------
The Glory-of-the-snow, Chionodoxa forbesii, is a very common flower here in the spring along with a few others from the same family. Their blue petals with white base are typical. These I found growing an a small area. There were hundreds of them.

Daisies 2008-03-10 - Daisy, Daisy
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/60 - 80s, f6,3 (last two) - 8
-------------------------------------------
Daisies are small and belong to the down-on-your-knees category. You have to get down on your knees to get good photos of them. Their colour and the fact that they mainly grow out in the open makes them difficult to photograph as the petals get easily blown.

Flowers 2008-03-08 - Assorted spring flowers
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/60 - 200s, f8
-------------------------------------------
Spring is definitely on its way. On my walk today I found a few different kinds of spring flowers. It is always nice to see them, and they gave me good opportunities to practice using the Raynox 150. I'm still quite use to the 250.

Lesser Celandine 2008-03-04 - The first Lesser Celandine
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/250 - 320s, f8
-------------------------------------------
The Lesser Celandine, Ranunculus ficaria, is quite common where it grows and can form large shining yellow "carpets" on the ground. It usually blooms at the same as the Wood Anemone. I didn't expect to find a blooming one so soon. And there waer actually two.

Daisy 2008-02-29 - Daisies Bellis perennis
Lens: Raynox DCR-150
Flash: Yes, diffused
Settings: Av mode, ISO 80, 1/60s, f8
-------------------------------------------
Daisies belong to the down-on-your-knees category of plants. You have to get down on your knees to photograph them. They are also mostly white which is a tricky colour to deal with. I think these Daisies have been here all winter long, and blooming!.

Winter Aconite 2008-02-03 - Winter Aconite
Lens: Raynox DCR-250
Flash: No
Settings: Av mode, ISO 80, 1/80s, f8
-------------------------------------------
Winter has been mild so far and now more and more signs of spring flowers can be seen. It is no surprise that one of the first is Winter Aconite, Eranthis hyemalis. It's always early. These were found together with at least a hundred others at the same location.
