Wild Wednesday: 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 wild flowers, bugs, birds, snakes and other curiosities found in the wild?

Why not join my weekly MEME called #WildWednesday. Every Wednesday I will be sharing a photograph of wild flora or fauna in my local area. Who will join me?

How it works: Simply post a photo to your blog with some relevant blurb if possible. Include the words ‘Wild Wednesday’ in the post title and use the hashtag #wildwednesday. Please don’t forget to leave a link to your blog post in the comments below. If you want to link back to my post and share the love and learn together, that would be great, thank you.
