Common Toadflax With Visitor
The flowers of the Common Toadflax - Linaria vulgaris - (which is also known as 'Butter and Eggs' in some parts of the country). It flowers from July to October and is similar to the Antirrhinum (Snapdragon). I was lucky to get this shot just as a Hoverfly decided to come for a look, unfortunately for him though, only large bees are strong enough to push the lips of the flower apart to get to the nectar. Seen near Scotmans Flash, Wigan.
