Wild orchid

At least I think this is what it is. I thought they were very pretty and they were growing along the river banks. I also walked along the river towards Tempsford as well. It was lovely as the sun came out and it was quite warm
A beautiful flower. A stranger to me. Nicely done.

It's Himalayan Balsam (Impatiens glandulifera) - a highly invasive exotic plant introduced in 1839. Beautiful but doing a cracking job of outcompeting our native riverside plants.

Beautiful shot though - the dof works brilliantly :)

Thank you for your kind comments and also for the info about what flower it is Lisa. It is pretty despite it taking over our countryside!
