Comment by Lizzie down under on 11th August 2013 at 05:52
Very pretty John.....one of my favourite colours.....cheers!!


Comment by Ron D on 11th August 2013 at 08:13
Very neat .A good one John.


Comment by dirty harry on 11th August 2013 at 09:38
oh come on wigan world yes its a macro shot of a weed of some sort . it says INCE on the piccy it could be nepal for all we know....get a grip please


Comment by Lizzie down under on 11th August 2013 at 10:41
People that cannot be nice about beautiful pictures like this......should keep themselves to themselves and not be encouraged....
Rant over..... :-) .......cheers!!!


Comment by christine bishop on 11th August 2013 at 11:36
i agree lizzie ,


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 11th August 2013 at 11:43
Liz:The photo`s of wildlife and flowers are very good, but there are other places for them.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 11th August 2013 at 12:44
Hi Ernest......may be you are right to some degree.....I don't see any harm in the odd pictures of flowers or birds or dogs.....they are part of the Wigan scene....they grow there, they are there, so what is so bad.....photographers love to explore these mediums to give us all pleasure at the amazing pictures they create....I love them all...and try to comment on all the pictures that are posted on here....they all have their own worth and merit, and if there wasn't the daily picture this ex pat would be pretty unhappy....cheers to you all..... :-)


Comment by Maureen on 11th August 2013 at 12:46
When anyone doesn't like the P-A.D..they shouldn't comment..can't please all the people all of the time..simples...I love wildlife and love those colours too.
I personally don't see anything nice about buildings etc,I know some folk do so I just don't comment.


Comment by BREN on 11th August 2013 at 13:06
I agree with you Lizzie and Maureen.


Comment by mick on 11th August 2013 at 13:17
It's life Jim, but not as WE know it.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 11th August 2013 at 15:02
Liz; We`ve had 5 out of this month`s
11.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 11th August 2013 at 16:14
Why can`t we all enjoy what is on screen...we don`t have to leave it on longer than we want to !


Comment by Wee Wullie on 11th August 2013 at 16:19
It is Centaurea nigra or Common Knapweed, also known as Hard Heads and Black Knapweed.

The flowers attract a wide range of insects including bees, flies, butterflies and beetles and the resulting seed heads attract goldfinches and other seed feeding birds.

So all in all a very important wild flower wonderfully captured by John, as far as I'm aware Dirty Harry they don't grow in Nepal, but they and other wild flowers do thrive in Ince and other places around Wigan too.


Comment by Janice on 11th August 2013 at 17:45
To stretch the 'nigglers' even further, this site is about Wigan, Wiganers and what Wiganers are about - and John was out and about photographing the beautiful flora that abounds in the area, also giving a good indication of his hobbies and likes - similar to those of lots of other Wiganers. A lovely subject and well taken.


Comment by kath Pressey on 11th August 2013 at 18:11
it's nice to have variety. I try and look each day and enjoy seeing what people snap when they're out and about.
this photo may be a weed /wild flower but may encourage someone to look closer and see the beauty when next they come across one.


Comment by Pat on 11th August 2013 at 19:50
I agree with Kath - just enjoy looking at the photos, and appreciate them - because Photo of the day is just that - photos, not just for Wigan scenes, although they are always interesting to see!


Comment by Ellen on 11th August 2013 at 20:07
Hear, hear Lizzie; I totally agree with you! I refuse to comment on D.H.'s remarks, no matter how my swallowed words may choke me!!!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 11th August 2013 at 21:37

Comment by Lizzie down under on 11th August 2013 at 22:02

Comment by Lizzie down under on 11th August 2013 at 22:08
