You got down well to take this shot. They are attractive little plants and funnily enough I was up early this morning to shoot some local examples of both Snake's-head and white. Very nice image.

Britain's favourite? I've never seen one (doesn't mean a great lot!)
You have captured its essence very well however.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
