A Meadow Tale - The Meadow Foxtail

One of the earlier flowering Grasses , which helps it stand out when things get a bit crowded in the Field and  Ground layers , already showing signs of  Hedge Bedstraw  shooting up at the reserve entrance . The Spectrum of Grasses on and throughout the reserve provide vital and specific food plants for particular Moths & Butterflies such as 1526 Small Skipper Thymelicus sylvestris  A grassland Mirid is seen lurking on the Seed Head. Can You Spot it ??
