Actually I looked up the derivation of the name, it means 'twisted fruit'. I think I'd rather have the sore throat.

Unfortunately the image stabilizer is useless for quick, busy bumble bees

Some wild flowers on my way to work...

Bluebells fading as spring ages



Buttercups



Cow parsley



Are grasses permitted here, or do we need a new thread? These backlit specimens caught my eye

@ Alan -- The first two could benefit from crops as there is just too much background. I like the parsley and grass ones.

@ mipr and jagged -- good work.

Thanks for the comments Cam, just getting into flower photography so C&C is very welcome. It's another topic that's harder than it looks... but that's what makes it interesting

*EDIT*
Sorry I'm so use to posting smaller pictures on the other forums to ease the load on the 56kers that I forgot bigger photos are allowed here, bigger versions now up

Hagel -- thse look very nice, but it is hard to tell at this size. About 960 pixels on the longest side for a horizontal is better.

And welcome to Dyxum. I hope to see more of your shots.
