A favourite type of macro photography subject for me at this time of the year is objects that emerge from the melting snow pack. Caught early in the season, the recrystallized snow in this image provides a pristinely pure backdrop. I was attracted by the sensuous curves of the willow leaf. Its shape reminds me of a cobra that is under the hypnotic influence of a snake charmer.
