The most widespread and common British orchid, the Common Spotted Orchid (Dactylorhiza fuchsii) has a preference for chalk and limestone grassland. Its leaves are always dark-spotted but the plant itself may be variable in height. Pictured here with a common Meadow Buttercup(Ranunculus acris). Taken last June. Roll on Spring!

Many thanks for your generous support of my Blue Tit upload - really appreciated as always Smile

An absolutely fabulous image Sylvia, love the composition and summery feel. Just what the doctor ordered on another thoroughly depressing winters day

Hope you are keeping well. Regards Roger
