Nikon D3000 on macro setting


The Cuckoo Flower or Lady’s Smock is an elegant flower. The plant is 20-50cm in height with narrow long leaves and will produce several pink or white flowers on each stem in late spring/early summer.

It can be found in moist or wet habitats, including damp grasslands, roadsides, ditches and river banks. In garden situations the plant can play a role in spring flowering lawns on heavy soils, when a regular cutting programme is carried out after flowering. The Cuckoo Flower can be established in a range of wet grasslands, including sites waterlogged in the winter.

The flower is an important larval host plant and nectar source for the Orange-Tip and Green-Veined White butterflies
