taken 4 years ago, near to Swanbister, Orkney Islands, Great Britain

Butterbur forest
Butterbur forest
Inside the woodland is a huge seasonal 'stand' of Butterbur (Petasites hybridus). This very large-leaved and tall plant hosts a great number of invertebrates and shelters specialised fungi. It is potentially sensitive, so trampling should not be encouraged.
Recently the most northerly record of a specific and rare but very TINY beetle, was located here. See LinkExternal link
