Wildflowers in June

Here are three photos taken on 16th June. The first ( below) is a Bee Orchid showing seed pods developing from the early flowers with others still going strong
On the right is a Pyramidal Orchid at an early stage of flowering which will continue through into July.
The third photo is a the really beautiful single flower on a Grass Vetchling. According to the books it is the only vetch which looks just like a grass. It is therefor almost impossible to see until it flowers. Click on the picture to get the real beauty of this plant.

All these photos were taken by Mike Cook in our local meadow on 16th June.

I'll add some more to cover July next.
