Galanthus nivalis

Galanthus nivalis

As the New Year begins to gain speed the Galanothophiles start to swarm – Snowdrop fever takes hold. Variants of the common Snowdrop change hands for ┬áhundreds of pounds and photographers stalk these modest, yet delightful little flowers, after all what else is there to photograph in the depths of Winter.

This is the common, ‘wild’ Snowdrop and my favourite – hard to improve on.
