I’m walking along a hillside woodland that I’ve been along a dozen of times during our first month of lockdown. And as the glorious weather appears to bring an early Summer, these bright little stars light up the shaded verge.
They are the same species (Lesser Celandine), yet not identical, and the diversity adds interest. As I contemplate the parallel to human society, I spot tiny insects working one of the flowers.
My curiosity was further rewarded by the discovery of a mating pair of oil beetles (see here for a related Outdoor Daily) among the Celandine leaves.
There is so much to discover, even on the 13th time walking the same way!
