Azure and the Wild Lettuce

The wild lettuce spreads it seeds following the dandelion tradition. The cases, not quite ready here, are about 1 inch, emerging from some tiny yellow flowers. These stalks are 4-5 feet tall and were left uncut. Today they are a mass of fluffy seeds ready to fly!

The Azure-- probably from the last hatching--

A fabulous image of this tiny beauty, this species looks very like our Holly Blue. Keeping him/her so small in the frame gives us a real sense of scale.

A superb shot and a nice bit of information to go with it Jennn, I've never heard of wild lettuce before, don't know if there's any around here, certainly don't recognise it, but that doesn't mean much in my case! SadSmile

Up to your usual excellent standard, you have photographed him in a wonderful pose. He's exploring the bloom so intently.
