Wild orchid

On the Save The Shoreham Toll Bridge charity bike ride on Sunday 25 June, I became all Nature Boy and shot some snaps of wild flowers. Being an urban lad from Up North, I'm not sure what they are called, and I can't really tell the difference between a flower and a weed, but I do know what I like! The field of poppies on the Downs Link by the River Arun was spectacular, and I spotted my first wild orchid, identified on t'internet as Pyramidal Orchid (Anacamptis pyramidalis). Woo yay!
