Beetle flower

Beetle flower

It looks like an army of pink beetles clustered together, ready to crawl to the next place. I chanced across this beautiful yet beguiling floral in an arid, out of the way spot on the coast of south-east England.

Is it beautiful or vile? Can any nature buffs put a name to this specimen?…

  1. You have the perfect name for what otherwise might be the seedhead of wild carrot – and Daucus carota. Would smell as sweet at the end of your lens, whatever it is called.
