Eranthis hyemalis

After more than 30 years I managed it to visit the maybe largest accumulation of eranthis hyemalis in central Europe the first time!

It is located in the Rautal, a side valley near Jena. I was there last weekend and I was to late to see all flowers full blooming. But it was still a nice coloured spot within the almost brown and grey wood. Spring is coming! :)

Photo was done with my newest lens – a lovely Pentacon 135/2.8. The newer one with only 6 blades. I would love to get the 15 blade version someday – anyhow, great piece of optics!
