Finds on an evening walk

North Yorkshire, Walking

We don’t often go walking in the evening.  But yesterday we did, and found ……. orchids – I only know the last one, the bee orchid, by name…..

…… trees stalking the skyline……

…… inquisitive young calves huddled together: they thought we were scary ..

….. and best of all, this sheep.  Naughty thing, she’d escaped from her field, and was having a high old time eating the contents of this wheat field.  We told the farmer when we saw him later.  Was he bothered?  Not a lot.

I wonder if she left this wool behind?

  1. When we lived in France, our own area had over 60 varieties easily to be spotted . And I gather there are far more than that. Back then, I could identify about 5 – 6 of them. But that was then……

  2. Taking a walk at a different time of day than usual means you see the world very differently, right? I like the photo of the wool shreds on the fence–took me back to a trip to Ireland where we found the same thing. And re: the flowers–do you have a smartphone? I just got an app called Picture This that identifies flowers and plants when you take a photo of them. Pretty cool.

    1. My smartphone is a bit basic, but it’s worth a look to see if it would support your app. Thanks! I’d like one too that does the same kind of thing for birdsong.

  3. Rainy walks, evening walks… I love how things look different at different times of day and in different conditions. I generally find there’s something peaceful about an evening walk; I suppose because the busyness of the day is done. Your walk looks so inviting. Love those orchids and the stalking trees!

    (Pssst…. I’ve started it….)
