We have had a couple of grand wanders this morning. It is windless and about 10oC. Lot’s of flowers coming into bloom, I rescued three White Tailed Bumble Bees and popped them on branches. I also found a much smaller Bumble bee which didn’t want to be saved; quite cross it got.
All the images today are flowers or plants. All were shot with the Canon 100mm-400mm. It is a cracking lens and weighs next to nothing. It has a minimum focus distance of about 2m and is a bit slow at a stop +/- f5. It does the job.
I’ve a project in mind for either dusk or dawn if the weather clears to leave just a few clouds and the wind picks up a bit. If that fails then I’ll go out flora-ing again but take a macro lens and ring flash.
I’d like to mention MARIA for the inspiration for the style. I always enjoy her posts. I am not in her league so go and have a look at her flowers and plants.
Here we go…………………………
White Campion. The leaves are edible if boiled for a while. They are good chopped finely in an omelette or better still in a tortilla which is Spanish for an omelette with chopped potatoes in. Use them like Spinach. Do not eat raw, they have that toxin which begins with an ‘S’ that red beans have.
I’m still waiting for the new door handle, I’m hoping that Dragonflies will soon be on the wing. There are a few Mayflies about so the Dragons shouldn’t be long.
That’s all for today.
