Wildflower Photo Tip

Unopened Sharp Lobed Hepatica Blooms
If you get to your wildflower destination early, chances are good that the wildflowers will not have opened up. Noobs might imagine that the buds they see are either flowers that are past their prime, or that they are the final flower.

The picture below is a clump of sharp lobed hepaticas that have not opened.  Only a half hour later they were wide open and upright. I like this particular species both open and closed. To me they look like tiny roses when closed.

So, if all the blooms are closed, wait around. It is just a matter of time before they pop open as the morning cool lifts. Why not shoot them both ways?
