Speedwell Yorkshire Churchyard

Speedwell Wildflower Yorkshire
Picture of speedwell wildflower growing in a Churchyard in Yorkshire.

I was in a churchyard that was new to me this afternoon and whilst exploring the headstones I came across several patches of speedwell growing amongst the grass.

With hindsight the above photo is not as good as the one of Speedwell I posted before. I now use a Canon and have no macro lens as yet for this camera. I can still use the macro lens on my old Olympus but I generally do not carry it with me.

The best way to photograph such a beautiful but small wildflower is to lay down on the grass, preferably with a macro lens.


  1. Speedwell are some of my favourite spring flowers. So much beautiful detail on such a small scale.


Thanks so much for visiting my Leeds in Yorkshire photography blog
and for your much appreciated comments. If you leave a question relating to today's photograph or commentary, I'll do my best to give an answer, so do come back later. Thanks.
