Visited an Essex Wildlife Trust meadow this morning and discovered the GWO were showing at last - three weeks later than last year. The meadow seems to have taken a battering over the Winter with far less spikes showing...!!! Taken with the camera resting o a beanbag in between the strong gusts of wind.

Another exquisite flower macro, Mike. Detailed to perfection and well isolated by those dreamy bg tones. Love it.
