Beesby Wood in Spring

It’s been a long long time since I’ve posted a blog! Mainly because once again my photography has taken a real hit from university commitments. I’m back in Lincolnshire now for a couple of weeks for the Easter break and since the sun shone the other afternoon I decided to take a look at a local woodland I had seen photographed on flickr. From the photos I had seen on flickr the wood looked to be home to lots of wood anemones, and when I got there I wasn’t disappointed!

I somewhat unfortunately discovered, as the sun continued on its way down, that wood anemones are nyctinastic, meaning the flowers close up at night. So many of the flowers had begun to close, making them a slightly less impressive display, but beautiful all the same!

 The sun was sparkling through the back of the wood, making for some great back lighting, and who doesn’t like a photo with a star burst in it!
