Wildflowers: Antirrhinum Cirrhigerum – Wolf Mouth

This week for Wild Wednesday I have chosen the wild antirrhinhum.

Who knew Antirrhinums grew in the wild? They grow near the coast, in pine forests and even in sand, as pictured below. They are also called: Boco de lobo do literol or as loosely translated: WOLF MOUTH

Several walks along the cliff tops or near our house in the western algarve during January, yielded the following photo opportunities.

Do you enjoy taking photographs of wildflowers, bugs, birds, snakes and other curiosities found in the wild?

Every Wednesday I will be sharing a photograph of wild flora or fauna in my local area. Who will join me ?
