Seen near Hook Lighthouse, an iPhone image best viewed Large to see the fleshy leaf detail, they remind me of the Rock Samphire (with ants) which I photographed earlier HGGT!

 

"This plant can be found mainly growing on shingle & waste ground in coastal areas. It is a very pretty sight from April to October with its lovely daisy-flowers. The 20-40mm flowers have yellow centres (disc florets) & white petals. The fleshy leaves are also very pretty; they are cut into numerous pinnate divisions. This is one of our native coastal plants & belongs to the family Asteraceae"

Scentless Mayweed is a species which grows in abundant masses in arable fields & on cultivated/disturbed ground. The plants grow to about 75cm, bearing daisy-like flower-heads. The plants are not aromatic (like Scented Mayweed). This is a native perennial, more common in the South, East and North East of Ireland. It flowers from April until October and belongs to the Asteraceae or Daisy family.

I saw a Common Blue today , no pic.

De la famille de la marguerite, plus connue sous le nom de la camomille puante. La plante doit son nom à ce que toutes ses parties dégagent, après avoir été froissées, une odeur forte et désagréable, rappelant celle de l'urine concentrée.

On la trouve partout au Canada. Classée comme plante toxique, elle renferme une substance âcre qui irrite les muqueuses, on peut en tirer parti pour éloigner les mouches.

On la distingue facilement de la marguerite par son capicule bombé qui ressemble à un volant de badminton lorsque la floraison est avancée.

The field has been left fallow and was full of this flower. It smelt fabulous as I chased the butterflies.

seen in northern Sonoma County, California

Two of these beauties were feeding on a roadside puddle and mud. They are not so common now, but I was lucky to see about a dozen this afternoon in a lane near where I live. Most of them were nectaring on scentless mayweed in a hay field.

A couple of comatose bees on mayweed last week! No idea of species!

Upton Magna - Shropshire

 

Thanks to Nigel Jones for ID: Colletes sp (m)

Very excited to find one of these today! It's a species that I've always admired in books and photos! Aka the Chamomile shark.

This species was high on the list of new moths I hoped to see in 2020. With peak flight time late April unless one came to me it wasn't going to happen. Instead this week I went looking for the caterpillars finding ten individuals across two sites on the north coast of Ireland. Check out any Scentless Mayweed for the stunning looking caterpillar.

I love this plant and the perfume exuded when you brush against it.

Common and widespread.

It's so lovely to see wild flowers amongst crops! Think these are a type of mayweed, but happy to be corrected!

A day at Woodfield Lake.

I know it’s Mayweed, but is it scented or unscented? I suppose the only way to find out is to go back and have a sniff....

Classed as rare in Galloway, I found 11 larva on 7 plants of Sea Mayweed.

A first find of this species for me.

Other notable finds were my 1st Silver Y's & Yellow Shell moths of the year + the exciting find of 54 Pyramid Orchids in the sand dunes and roadside. Never seen those Orchids in Scotland before.

Spent a day at the coast today, more like a summers day. Nothing much to see at our first stop - Auchenmalg nr Port William so we turned tail and headed down to Monrieth Bay and OMG look what the star find was. Such a pity that I didn't find it last year when all was green.

No 32.

Everything seemed to align today when I received a call from my friend Ron www.flickr.com/photos/157646645@N07/ who had received a call from Nicola www.flickr.com/photos/63545706@N05/ to say that there were some Clouded Yellow butterflies on some waste ground near Wakefield. I was only about 3 miles away so went straight there and managed to see four, all males, though I may have double-counted. The Clouded Yellow is a rather unpredictable visitor to Britain but in some years large numbers arrive from southern Europe. Commonest along the south coast, they infrequently reach as far north as Yorkshire. They cannot survive Britain's cold, wet winter so we are totally dependent on migrants to grace our shores each year. This photograph shows one nectaring on a Scentless Mayweed flower. They never bask with their wings open so any open-winged shot is usually just a lucky take whilst it was flapping.

Spectacular flower meadow at the top of the Hill with unbelievable number of Pyramidal, Fragrant and Common-spotted orchids... among red clover, mayweed and many other flowers and grass. From this summer archive. Noar Hill, East Hampshire, England

 

Another Puffin shot from last year! Could he fit another sand eel in I wonder? :-)

Mating seven - spot ladybirds on scented mayweed, Brockholes, Lancs.

Here is another of the Clouded Yellow butterflies that I photographed a couple of days back. This one was beautifully backlit whilst it sipped nectar from a Scentless Mayweed flower. The fact that a number of Clouded Yellows have suddenly appeared in pristine condition at the same spot in West Yorkshire, makes me certain theses are the offspring of a female that passed this way a couple of months back. The scientific name Colias croceus is beautifully apt, as Colias is a site on the coast of Attica where there was a temple to Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and sensual love. Croceus means saffron-yellow, which describes the rich colour of this migrant butterfly perfectly.
