Fritillaria Meleagris is now a protected species in the UK.

The white one behind has partially opened up this morning after surviving a couple of bitterly cold nights and a bit of snow.

I have a picture of that to upload later. If conditiions are right tomorrow, it may be open fully – fingers crossed

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.
