Legacy Anemone

Wood Anemone is usually found in older deciduous woodland, and that's typically where I find it. High in the Spruce plantation, however, a single tiny clump continues to grow - almost certainly an indication of the original habitat that was removed to plant the conifers. This little act of defiance always makes me smile.

Yet another new moth to light: Common Quaker - Orthosia cerasi. Male.

"This little act of defiance always makes me smile." yup. Wood sorrel, bluebell and dog's mercury also manage to hang on after their original woods have been cut down. Another fine portrait - you're really getting the hang of these white flowers - wish I could!
