The woodland floor in spring
Accelerated time lapse photography during springtime in a deciduous woodland - phototropism in action. Young plants sprout and hurry to make the most of the sunlight before it is obscured by deciduous tree leaves. This seasonal bloom is not seen in tropical forests or conifer forests.
