Re-posting

I make no apologies for posting some pictures today of a bird and a flower which I have posted before. First thing, as I looked, squinting out of the bedroom window a Woodpigeon, with a 'what are you looking at' look on it's face, was stumbling around in the Hawthorn tree outside.

Looking a little out-of-place on the smallest twigs, it seemed to be having difficulty keeping it's balance.

I just love the slightly puzzled look these birds always seem to have.

The other pictures today are of Common Spotted Orchids. These particular specimens have the most fantastic markings on their petals.

One of the distinguishing attributes of this species are these purple-ish stripes and spots on the petals which help to guide insects to the nectar within.
