This wild flower was photographed near Dun Eochla stone fort on Inishmore (or Arainn) – the largest of the Aran Islands in Galway Bay.

Its full common name is “Bloody Cranesbill”. This derives, not from the pink flowers, but from the leaves that turn red in autumn. Its botanical name is “Geranium Sanguineum”. It is quite a rare wild flower in Ireland as a whole because of its preference for alkaline soil.

The Aran Islands have a limestone geology and hence share many of their wild flowers with the nearby Burren region in County Clare on the Irish mainland.
This photograph is part of my postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card .

    Nice flower George!

  • Thanks Eddie, I included this one, even though it had had a chunk taken out of one of its petals, because I just love those Canon 5D Pixels! The 5D handles the light and the tiny details so well. I think with the Mk II Canon are approaching the qualities of Kodachrome that I so missed! George
