Siberian squill in blue and White. It’s a bulbous perennial native to Siberia flowering in early spring. Most specimens have blue flowers, but the variety alba is white. At 15 cm (6 in), Siberian squill is suitable to be planted in grass, and will form large colonies that go dormant by the time grass needs to be mowed. ref: Wikipedia.

Started photography in 1975. Took photography classes. Learned black and white dark room. Did the transition to digital in 2005. Learned a few post-processing programs and made my choice to Photoshop and Lightroom.
I like to shoot wildlife, birds, macro, landscapes and street photography to name a few.
