There's life in a Linseed Field

20th July 2016
Shimmering in the early haze of an already warm summers day you may be forgiven for mistaking a field full of linseed as a mirage in the distance.

The warm breeze makes the short stems sway as the petals gradually open little by little once the sun becomes warmer. Each flower barely lasting a day beckons the bees and butterflies whilst providing cover and backdrop for the local wildlife.

Getting up at 4am regardless of the lovely weather is still a task but reward awaits with opportunities to photo the ever present brown hare and maybe a Roe or Muntjac Deer!

It's taken a while to find the best spot to sit and now that I have found it the flowering season is probably all but over. I think I may give it one last try at the end of the week though in the hope of getting that award winning photo!
