We have been out today trying to get a good shot of bluebells, most are in amongst nettles, delete is the order of the day.
This is a superb shot, with beautifully detailed flowers.Smile

Nicely isolated Mike, I came across loads whilst out with George the other day at Bedfords which may have potential. Going to give them a try tomorrow morning if it keeps dry Wink
