So after being shut in for so long and the travel distance relaxed I took to visiting the local canal for a wildlife fix.
Who’d have thought a Stinging Nettle would have such beauty?
And here’s a chap whose young will feed on the nettle. Can’t help thinking this is our version of an Elk. Six legged of course.
The Yellow Flag Iris a star of our waterways. Tall and elegant and not too showy.
They may have had their names changed but to me they will always be Umbellifers. This a poisonous member of the Carrot family.
Here a hoverfly enjoying the nectar from the Dropwort.
And on the stem of the Dropwort an Alderfly. It’s a popular plant today.
Dragonflies and Damselflies are some of my favorites. Drawing me to water.
