Flowers at Garston Wood

A warm Sunday April afternoon, and I took at trip to the RSPB Woodland Reserve at Garston Wood.  This is a great place in spring for woodland flowers, and in early May is normally carpeted in Bluebells.  The bluebells were up and adding colour to the forest floor, but they were not fully out in their full bell form.  However earlier in the year, like today the earlier flowers like Wood Anemone and Celandine, make a great display.  Taking along my 100mm Macro Lens, I took the opportunity to shoot some of these flowers up close.

My personal favorite shot of the day is this first one, of a Wood Anemone and other flowers blurred out in the background.
