Russian Comfrey ??

By NickBrandon
I think that this is Russian Comfrey, but could be Common Comfrey, any positive ID's ???

I have used 300mm to isolate plant from BG, and positioned myself to get a bloom that was lit well and one that showed the hairy leaf detail against the dark BG.

Tripod mounted camera,

thanks for looking,

very nicely dealt with I like the dof you have in this image and the flower and hairy leaf adds a lot to the image

Bet this doesn't get marked as good critique Smile
The Francis Rose wildflower key suggests Russian is the most common but you couldn't really ID between the two of this shot, which is another beauty by the way!
I think the tight crop works nicely with the subject.

Nice one Nick, I have been passing so much of these on the roadside verges of late, but havn't had time to stop and get a shot.
Be pleased if I can get one as good as this.
