Slender Speedwell (16:9 Wallpaper)

Another one from the archives re-edited and re-formatted for use as a wide-screen desktop wallpaper.


These tiny little wild flowers are Slender Speedwell (Veronica filiformis). They're often found growing in lawns in Ireland, where they add a stunning blue colour. This shot was taken on one of the many massive laws in the grounds of St. Patrick's College in Maynooth, Ireland. Yes - I was lying flat on my stomach on the lawn with a big zoom lens to get this shot - and yes, it got me more than a few funny looks :)
