July Photos

Some photos from the last few weeks, managed to get a day out in Snowdonia. The day started off grey and overcase to bright blue skies, which is always a challenge, but as I was on my own there was no rush or plan.

Recently bought a macro lens Tamron 90mm, as i spend a lot of time at home looking after my Dad it seemed a worth while investment especially with all the flowers blossoming in the garden.

The charismatic, pink flower spikes of Foxgloves are famous as both a reminder of the hazy days of summer and of their deadly poisonous nature. Digitalis purpurea while very beautiful with its trumpet like blossoms, are very poisonous to dogs, cats, and even humans! Foxglove contains naturally-occurring poisons that affect the heart, specifically cardenolides or bufadienolides. These poisons are called cardiac glycoside toxins, and they interfere directly with electrolyte balance within the heart muscle. The Latin name, Digitalis, means ‘finger-like’ and refers to the tubular flowers of the Foxglove. It is also the name of the drug that comes from the toxins of Foxgloves and is prescribed for heart conditions.

  1. WOW … All of your pics are stunning!! The close-up macro of a water droplet refraction image using a small flower is the best, and I very much liked the description of the Foxglove, that I have seen somewhere, but I didn’t know of its properties (poison /medical double effect, this is interesting)! Thank you for sharing,
