Uskmouth Orchids and a Cool Cat

Managed a trip to Uskmouth in amongst the showers. The dew made up for the lack of rain, though and wet knees were the price of some snaps of the local orchids

Southern Marsh



This last was one I first saw 2 years ago on the same site. I had aways admired the pictures I'd seen and they are as lovely as I hoped - but the flowers are smaller than I expected. If you just glance you could miss a plant completely, at least until you get tuned into what you are looking for.
Whilst out and about I found a rather cool looking caterpillar just leaving the path. I have discovered it's The Drinker (named because the caterpillar drinks dew). Cool.
