Yarrow

By viscostatic
I think this is yarrow - any confirmation, or otherwise, of the ID would be welcome. A very common plant it is very difficult to photograph as it is so tall and sways in the wind and it is difficult to avoid distracting backgrounds.

I hope the weather if brighter with you than it is in Inverness.

Nice 3d effect. These small white things are always hard to capture.

I love the starry heads of these plants, Phil. Yes, this is yarrow. I used to get it mixed up with valerian, but the feathery leaves easily distinguish this one from valerian. Very nice image.

Great isolated capture. (What did you do to all the others !? ) (Don't understand your complaint about the Inverness weather of today though...I've been sweating under intermittent hot sunshine, working in the garden all day, no rain ...it is needed,though, but wait until Rock-Ness is over, perhaps !?)

Yes Bitte - it got better as the day went on - I posted this at 8.30 in the morning when it was very dull and grey.
