Cowslip by Andy

Cowslip Flower (Primula Veris)

I always enjoy taking pictures of this pretty spring flower which flowers throughout April and May, which is pollinated by insects, like butterflies, moths and bees.

I have seen and photographed this flower covering a large area of a cattle grazed field on chalk-hill downs of Farley Mount, in Hampshire as this flower preferrers open grassland than shady areas.

Early pollinating insects like the brimstone butterfly  are frequent visitors to the Cowslip flower.
