[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was out walking at Old Harry rocks last night and wandered past a small woods that I have strolled past and not taken any notice of many times. I decided to go and "answer a call of nature" in the woods when I noticed this wild Garlic plant. After finishing the buisness at hand I walked farther into the little woodland to find what can only be described as a "Carpet of Garlic". These pretty little flowers had literally taken over. I think this just goes to show that you can walk past something many times but if you are lucky enough to pass it at just the right occasion then you might witness one of nature's real wonders.

Hi Jai,
i know the spot where you mean, it's a beautiful place and the smell of wild Garlic in the air must have been strong!
A very nice shot of these pretty flowers, focus is sharp, nice composition and great job on the exposure too. Nice work.

Really? Is wild garlic eatable? I shall have to look it up. I know some species are not...but this may be one which can...very nicely done jai..and a good dedication!

Hi Jai,
see what happens when "Nature calls?".
If it would not have been for you going of the path we never would have got to see this lovely Garlic plant.
Lovely capture, POV and DOF looks very nice.
Excellent sharp details and a nice OOF BG to show off those little flowers.

Amazing and incredible white stars. Great taken.
