    A thread to share your own photographs.

    This thread is for Flowers & Plants.

    Anything you've shot, recently, a decade ago, a millennia ago, film, digital, pinhole, 35mm, medium format, cardboard backed home made chemicals. Anything.

    Share, appreciate, like, back-slap, comment, support, encourage. Stuff you're proud of, stuff you laugh at, stuff you just like something about.

    I think this looks good in B&W as well...

    A few from one of my favourite gardens, Mottisfont Abbey, near Romsey with the National collection of old roses, best visited in June when they are at their best

    Now some wild flowers.
    Primroses near Milton Abbas
    Gorse on Brownsea Island; old saying, "when gorse is not in bloom love is out of season", supposedly there's always bloom on a gorse bush

    I found this in my wild rear garden last July, and out of many similar flowers, it was the only one which had been decorated with holes. I've no idea what the flower is, or what insect did the hole cutting. 7858mcsp White flower with holes in petals, MK 19 July 2020.jpg

    It's field bindweed. The only insect I've seen make such precise cuts in the UK are leaf cutter bees, but I've never seen them do it to flower petals.

    Morning Martin,

    Many thanks for the ID & information.

    I’d like to be able to take good pictures of flowers in the wider garden setting but it never quite works. Most books on the subject tend to presume access before 07:00 on idyllic mornings, free of wind, wisps of mist diffusing the sunlight etc. etc. Maybe I should sign up for a course.

    The holes all seem regularly spaced. One hole made whilst still in bud?

    We may have to wait a while for a product, but it all has to start somewhere:

    That's very kind of you to so say. It doesn't really capture how nice they look.
