Image identification

The thing in the background is a male house sparrow.

I often get pictures of people who are clearly 'celebrities' (usually politicians) who I don't recognise. I usually have an inpromptue Facebook competition with offers of huge prizes which never appear.

I've had help several times that way, a couple of which have sold as a result.

Is it even worth trying to keyword this one folks? I'm not fussed about the type of plant, I don't see anyone using this image to illustrate whatever it is.  :)  It's just a man carrying a plant in a pot.....like you do, right?  :)  It just tickled me at the time but I don't know if there is any way to keyword it other than the obvious.......but who would search for "person carrying a plant showing it to strangers"?  :D

Purple Clematis, but can't decide which particular variety; pressuming that is there is more than one variety.

Looks like "Mrs N Thompson".

 

Look on "RHS Plants" site under "Purple clematis."

Great, thanks Allan. I think you're right. Plus a really useful website for future reference.

From Google I thought Alder Bracket fungus Inonotus radiatus but this is a conifer tree

Just spent 10 minutes looking through my book on Fungi of Britain and Northern Europe but cannot find anything that looks like that which grows on conifers.

 

Sorry.

Looks like rusty gilled polyporeGloeophyllum sepiarium. Similar in appearance to Inonotus radiatus but grows on dead conifersNot 100% sure. Always, always, always take a picture of the underside of fungi. Makes identification a lot easier ;)

Nice shot b.t.w.

 

Cheers,

Philippe

Thanks very much Davey. I just couldn't resist taking the pics but do remember how hard identification is.

 

I'll take a pic of the underside if the rain holds off.....

 

More church interior photography for me today:)

Damn', why can't you just photograph a fly agaric :wacko: :P

Think I'll stick with rusty gilled polypore Gloeophyllum sepiarium but not 100% sure. The problem is that the (usual) "tubes" can form into "gills" making it a tough nut to crack.

 

Cheers,

Philippe

Here's another one. It was shot in Vancouver but might be sub-tropical or even tropical. Just about anything will grow here.

 

Does anyone know what this big, leafy specimen might be?

 

Thanks

Must be some kind of gunnera (Gunneraceae). But there are a lot of species (63) which look very similar.

 

Is probably the cultivated Gunnera manicata / Brazilian giant rhubarb which is often found in gardens and parks. Of course, I'm not 100% sure. 

We need John Richmond!

JOHN....? WHERE ARE YOU?

 

Cheers,

Philippe

The image was taken on the bank of the Huangpu River in Shanghai, China.

Yes.. thanks Gen. A quick Google for 'night crowned herons' threw up plenty of similar looking birds.

I didn't get past 'Heron' when trying to work this out for myself!
