The Pasque Flower

There are many hundred species of wild flowers in Britain and one species that many wild flower enthusiasts and photographers like to see is the Pasque Flower.  It is quite uncommon, but in a few areas of undisturbed Chalk land habitat it can grow in large numbers.

It is quite early flowering and can be seen from April until around June when the flowers turn to seed heads which also make great photographic subjects.

I am lucky to live within an easy drive of one of the best sites in Britain for Pasque Flowers, which is a site in Cambridgeshire where all of the images below were take.
