In old folk-law if you wander into a ring of bluebells you will fall under a faerie spell and will soon die. Such a fearsome reputation for such an innocent flower me thinks.
very grim folklore for something so beautiful!! thankfully it isn't true -- i mean, you are still alive, right? ;) lovely!!

Oh! i've not heard that before! I hope i didn't do a circle around then when I went to the bluebell wood the other week, perhaps not, only part of a circle and that's why i ended up with the flu lol.
A beautifully crisp image and the colour is stunning.

There are Blue Bells everywhere right now, and this is a prime example, it looks lovely !

Me thinks so too.

Me thinks as well. Love the shooting angle. Makes it look like a giant bluebell.

Methinks, too. This is so nice and sharp. I think I'd be willing to risk the dire results to wander through the bluebells.

Who would guess that from such a beautiful flower? The angle and DOF is very nice.

Very nice composition, with this PoV, and the DoF.
