Probably at f/4 or f/5.6:

Pierre, indeed - it would be very early for Muguet de mai smile

These are spring snow flakes (Nivéole de printemps), they usually appear mid-March in the woodland of my region, but this year they are at least four weeks late. I took this picture last sunday, the last day I had to walk through patches of snow.
