Here wild poppies sit by a roadside along with umbellifers, thistles, nettles, and other wild plants.
The road is a very busy one carrying constant traffic – particular during the rush hours – so the idea was to get up very early in order to photograph the poppies – of which there are a wide variety – and other wild plants.
It was wonderful to be outside at 6am: the sun softly rising; the moon watching everything unfold; flocks of birds flying in formation catching the sun this way and that; corvids lining up on telegraph wires surveying the landscape for breakfast; bees awake and scrambling for nectar in the poppies, ……….. and a mosquito – caught in frame on the right hand side – waiting for a convenient human to sink its teeth into. (I did get bitten and it will itch like crazy later on).
Cars began to arrive in earnest just after 6.30 am so we bade farewell to the scene and returned home.
