Erythronium dens canis | dog’s tooth violet
In Puy de Dôme (Auvergne, France) this wild flower is rather rare. They normally flower around March till April/May . Lately we have very nice warm weather in France and nature is far ahead. So yesterday afternoon I had a look at the spot I know in the forest, to look if the little violets where already above the ground. Despite the nice weather I was still too early, but after some thorough ground search I found a couple of the flowers I was looking for. Personally I find this flower very photogenic and a lust for the eye, in contrast with the little forest location where it grows. I think it’s an (old) dump place, full with thorns, dead leaves and trash (car tires, electrical wire, metal barrows, washing machines etc). It is the third visit for me to this place and I must say it’s a real challenge to crawl with your 300mm lens over the floor and find a nice low angle shot 😉
