Snowflake

Taken the middle of July attempting to capture the fine texture of a snowflake flower. An early sign of Spring but still winter is biting.

 

The Snowflake Flower is native to southern Europe, from the Pyrenées to Romania and western Russia. It is the only species currently classified in the genus Leucojum, which in Greek means, "white violet." All parts of a Snowflake Flower are poisonous if ingested.
