Lets see your FIBs

Enough of this BIF stiff, too difficult. Lets have the opposite, things that don't fly - FIBs. Flowers in Bloom, preferably wild ones se we can see what's out now in different parts of the country.

These aren't very sharp, they were hand held and it was windy and the light wasn't brilliant. (more excuses available on request)
Germander Speedwell. It looks like a Forget-me-Not, but the flowers are not radially symmetrical. You can't really see that from this shot, but one of the petals is different from the others.



Water Avens, a favourite of mine

Re: Lets see your FIBs

Like the beetle on there, a nice touch. Yeah, there are lots of spectacular stands of dog roses up here at the moment. Going to be a good year for hips I think.

Re: Lets see your FIBs

Bit of a failure this one.

I spent all afternoon in the hide waiting to get a decent picture of this rose, and just as I pressed the shutter, it came towards me.

Tricky business, this.

Re: Lets see your FIBs

Lovely shots all, Andy - you have one of my favourite beetles there, Oedemera nobilis (know affectionately in this family as Thunder Thighs because of the size of the male's thighs )

some info here http://www.thewcg.org.uk/oedemeridae/0130G.htm

Re: Lets see your FIBs

Love the Water Avens, love Thunder Thighs, and so relieved Pete didn't get hurt by the attacking rose.
Not much about here, - it is winter you know - but I will try and find something over the weekend. Plenty of b......y sour-sobs coming up.

Re: Lets see your FIBs

One from this morning. Birds foot Trefoil.



Lots on my local reserve at the moment, not only colourful but the foodplant of one of my favorite moths, the Burnet which will be around in the next few weeks.

Re: Lets see your FIBs

Andy - wots that then? I struggle with these pea-like things.

Brian - The Orchid's nice, we tend to get Northern Marsh/Common Spotted hybrids. The 'Cowslip' is Yellow/Hay Rattle(Rhinanthus minor), I think.

Re: Lets see your FIBs

thanks for the ID John, now you mention Yellow Rattle I vaguely remember Pam saying something about it (but she tends to point vaguely into the distance and I'm supposed to pick up where she means me to look by some sort of 50 year old process of osmosis.)

A bit like when she cries " look at that thingy over there" and I'm supposed to know she has spotted something wonderful in her binoculars half a mile away

Sorry forgot to put its name, it's Birdsfoot Trefoil. I've edited the original post also.

Re: Lets see your FIBs

Hello John,
Great idea for a thread, some lovely shots here, I like your Water Avens one. Here's one of a Campion, I think it's Bladder Campion. I took it this evening using the 12-50 lens.
Regards Jim.
