About Today’s Photo:

There are certain places in the area where I can be assured that some of the earliest spring ephemeral wildflowers will make a showing. I was not disappointed when I walked to where the hepatica bloom. This little pair was making a go of it on a chilly morning just a couple of days ago.

Nikon D600, Sigma 105mm lens, ISO 1600, f/18, 1/125″ exposure.
