    • We were on an evening wildlife trust wildflower walk, across chalk meadows and hills, you would have really enjoyed it. We were also fortunate to see a Fly Orchid which was a first for me, they are a really interesting group of plants.

    • They are cool, and part of a group of mimicry orchids, on the same trip we also saw Fly Orchids, which look like a group of flies on an Orchid, all to fool insects into pollinating the plant.

  1. Is it just me or does this flower look like it’s smiling? At the top of the flower are two widely spaced dots that look like eyes above a big red smiley mouth. Pegsdon Hills must be a happy place. 🙂
