[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
'Bluebell is a perennial herb belonging to the Lily family and is found in shaded or semi-shaded conditions frequently carpeting the woodland floor in the spring'.


'Bluebell is an 'Atlantic' species not reaching further east than western Germany and absent from Scandinavia. Widely distributed and common throughout the United Kingdom, bluebell is of international importance as 25-49% of the world population is found in the UK.
It is intolerant of trampling, heavy grazing, water logging, deep shade and competing with vigorous grasses'.

My wife says that fairies also use the flowers for hats!

Very nice bells! Great DOF, POV. Grat! I like it!

Hello Stephen! A beautiful capture of these marvellous flowers! It would seem that macros are the only way to go to get detail, you must have been right down on the ground. Lovely clarity--texture is so vivid I can almost feel them in my hand. Well done, again!
