Jaak Põder - Hepatica


It’s the same thing every year. When spring comes, liverleaf starts to grow and many nature photographers are after them once they show up. There are probably billions of pics of hepatica by now and still, they draw our attention. Here is my this year’s version on what they look like.

Location: Kõrvemaa, Estonia

    I really like this creative approach. It is difficult to find something different from a subject that get's photographed this much, but you have succeeded here.
