I've had another round of walks around my local nature reserve on the outskirts of Frome. Here's a link to our website if you have time for a quick look. I was in the mood for some macros, although not all these were taken with my macro lens. I also used my 70-300ml lens. As I walked around, nature's way of preparing for the following year was most obvious. So, this particular post is saturated with seeds and seedheads! (-:
The Purple Loosetrife has now faded from it's vivid colour of summer to this more muted and soft pink/brown.
Rosebay Willowherb, often called Fireweed as it quickly colonises ground cleared by fire.
The seedheads split to reveal the plumed seeds.
This is some sort of Thistle or Knapweed seedhead, maybe someone out there can tell me which? The early morning dew is clinging to the fluffy seeds.
This below is some sort of Sorrel. It never fails to make a russet show at this time of year.
A close up of the seeds.
More Thistle type seedheads.
A lovely graceful grass with the early morning light shining through.
The bold seeds of Yellow flag iris.
The next two shots are specially for my friend Evie as I know they're one of her favourites! (-:
