Flower power again!


My last foray into floral photography was so successful that I’m going to take another break from the birds to post a photo of this lovely flower taken a couple of weeks ago, as I was heading over to the UBC Farm.

Once again, any help you can provide with respect to the species of this plant would be highly appreciated (and I will post updates as I get better information).  As always, this was taken with my trustworthy (and handheld) Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED.

[Update: Thanks once again to Myr, I now know these are part of the foxglove/digitalis genus. And thanks to Wikipedia, I can make an educated guess about the exact species: Common foxglove (Digitalis purpurea)].

      1. Oh, no. I only know a few. Sometimes people see me look at a flower and they tell me what it is called. Lucky! And sometimes Google returns the right picture for a flower description.

        Thanks for pointing out the species. I’ve only seen the Common Foxgloves around Vancouver. I looked at pictures of a few other species. They look like finger socks too, but are clearly different from the common ones.
