Angiosperm's early blossom

This year’s winter took a long time till finally said ‘Good bye’. In sheltered and sun-drenched corners Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) exhibit their flowers, but it is not yet the optimal time for pollination by insects (entomophilous pollination). Now that gymnosperms did not yet develop the leave in their canopy and all branches are easily accessible by the wind, it is height time for wind pollination (anemophilous pollination). Alder (Alnus glutinosa) exhibits male and female flower on almost the same twig.
