I think it’s one of the blue flycatchers. They’re difficult to tell apart, but likely Tickell’s blue or mangrove blue.

Looking again I think blue-throated flycatcher more likely.

Geoff is still with Alamy but after a few fiascos with red arrows decided not to post on the forums anymore.

 

Remember this is what drove Philippe Clement away too.

 

A lot of people on here miss both of them and their very useful, and sometimes fun comments, me included.

I'm surprised by this. People shouldn't get worked up about receiving a red. It says more about the person giving it than receiving it. Reds are for people who can't say it to you straight IMHO. Come back Geoff and Philippe.

Might be a "White Rumped Sharma". But not 100% sure.

Thanks guys :) 

Both look like viable options :unsure:

Anyone help with identity of this leaf please. The nearest I could come to naming it was a Plane tree leaf?? My little book of trees did not seem to come up trumps this time.

A few I've had for a while and never got around to keywording.

 

First, what is this lady carrying please? They don't look like flowers but there's probably a name for whatever they're called. Looks like a bunch of twigs! I don't expect a precise name, but there's probably a generic term for them.

Looks like a dying leaf, or a leaf changing colour at the start of Autumn. Taken in the UK at the start of September. How would you describe the state of this leaf please?

What's this please? I know it isn't too clear so I'll post a crop if needed. Taken in September.

This was taken in August. Viburnum tinus maybe? My guesses are usually wrong.  :)

Thanks!  :)

Geoff.

#1 I can only suggest twigs for floristry / flower arranging

#2 is leaf miner damage and subsequent necrosis of the leaf.  Lots of different leaf miners so you'll have to be generic about ID

#3 Can't see enough detail

#4 Developing flower heads of Sedum spectabile.  Wouldn't know which variety until it flowered.
