The smiling flower
We have some amazing things around us in nature - and this miniscule flower is certainly one of them.
This is a Bee Orchid - and this particular one was captured around Brandon Marsh back in late June of 2014.
My uncle and I were wandering around the area called the "tip" as it used to be one, but is now a wild meadow teeming with butterflies, rabbits, flowers and more. These flowers are so small I would have walked straight past them if not for Dave pointing them out.
My first few shots were of the flower from the side, and it was only when I lay down on the grass to get a head on shot that I realised how amazing they looked.
It is a smiling face - no question, so I personally would rename them from Bee Orchid to the Happy Orchid....definitely one of the most amazing flowers I have ever seen and I have missed out capturing it again the last few years on my even better camera, perhaps in 2018!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do
Thanks for reading as always - this particular image isn't in my photo gallery but you can look for inspiration for wall art here
