A close-up of some bright yellow oilseed rape flowers, photographed during some glorious warm and sunny weather once again today.
The oilseed pods can be seen here lower down the stem where the petals have dropped. These pods will swell up during the coming months ready for harvesting for the oil.
Saw many butterflies today – tortoise shell, peacock, orange-tip and brimstone – many of which were playing in pairs – whirling around in mid-air. Also saw a pair of woodpeckers – albeit at a bit of a distance – but a wonderful sight!
