Going on some guided walks in Yorkshire will most likely reveal all sorts of surprises. For example, I recently spotted this Hare’s Tail Cottongrass silhouetted and backlit by the setting sun.
Hare’s Tail Cottongrass grows in damp, boggy ground and there is lots of it up on our hills and moorland. When it flowers in spring/early summer, the ‘cotton’ heads form a sea of white blobs which stand out from the surrounding areas. These give an excellent indication of where the boggy ground is, and cry out ‘avoid me’. This year, however, it has been very dry so it was fun to get down low amongst the cotton grass to take shots like this.
If you’d like to join me on some guided walks in Yorkshire and learn more about some of the amazing plants we have, then why not get in touch and enquire about our guided walks or our mountain skills courses.
