Up on a marshy area of Corstorphine Hill there's a small orchid meadow. This year there are more common spotted orchids there than I remember from previous years and they seem to be spreading out from the original area. I love the contrast of the orchid with the buttercups and the way the light shines in the grass.
We were picking raspberries up Corstorphine Hill earlier today. It's worth the scratched arms to collect such delicious fruit! Lovely sunny day too with lots of butterflies (mostly meadow browns) flying around and grasshoppers calling from the grass.
Meanwhile I've added another couple of photos to the nature photography download section of the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop.
