Readers’ wildlife photos

April 22, 2020 • 7:45 am

Reader Mark Jones from the UK sent us some lovely flower pictures. I hope I get the order right (the photos weren’t labeled)! His words and IDs are indented:

Butterflies are still thin on the ground, so I thought I would send you a few of my close-up photographs of flowers. I find the macro details gorgeous. Descriptions, hopefully in order:

Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta):

Birdsfoot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus):

Forget-me-nots (Myosotis sylvatica):

Not sure, maybe Dame’s Rocket (Hesperis matronalis):

Pussy Willow (Salix):

No idea about this one, I call it spidery plant.

Daffodils (Narcissus):

  1. Nice set. I have a hard time remembering the names of flowers – common or Latin. Even the forget-me-not, which I’d call my favorite of these.

  2. Beautiful photos. My favorite (tho’ not by much in this lovely group) is the backlit daffodil. Q: What makes the birdfoot trefoil a birdfoot?
