Prunella Vulgaris

By clive burrow
I think this is a selfheal (prunella vulgaris), at least that's the closest I can find in my book of the countryside Wink

Spotted these on Sunday afternoon whilst out with greyheron and allix walking the dogs in Bedfords Park, Romford. I returned there again last night after work and came up with this one.
Camera tripod mounted very low, and off camera flash used to give some much needed light.

Many thanks for looking
