A couple of images of Marsh Marigolds.
Making the best of the warm(ish) weather at the moment, here are a few shots of a Hoverfly making the best of the multitude of Dandelions in bloom at the moment.
A single image of a wildflower, a Marsh-marigold growing alongside of the local beck.
Orange-tip Butterflies from Springtime.
Some shots of Orange-tip butterflies feeding on Vetch, taken in Spring this year.
I came across a pair of Autumn Poppies yesterday, very late to be still flowering, I think.
A Bee foraging on a clover flower.
Taken on Saturday (2 days ago) these Small Tortoiseshells are in pristine condition and appear to be newly emerged. They’re the first ones I’ve seen this Summer.
Some more photographs of the invasive wildflower (some would say weed) Fox and Cubs, otherwise known as Orange Hawkweed. These make a nice subject for close-up photography, particularly against a green background.
Three shots of some wild Flag Iris growing on the bank of the Calder and Hebble Navigation.
