Why do they call it "foxglove"?

Great rich colors, excellent details, perfect DOF and a nice composition! Informative note. The honey bee really likes this flower. The lip on the tip of the bloom is a perfect landing platform and, from there, they make their way up the bell to the sweets. You may enjoy my foxglove post.

We've got them in my coutry as well. But mostly the purple and white ones. I actually have an almost simular photo ready to be uploaded soon. Yours got wonderful details and color. With a perfect DOF and a wonderful dark colored BG.

Most useful and humorous notes my friend. One of my mothers favorite flowers I must add. And when it came to anything in the nature world, my parents were eggs-perts. Mom knew Latin names off the top of her head and would critique each flower and fauna with gentle kind words of affection.
A very attractive shot. I just know mom would have been stopped in her tracks on this picture...Wonderful.
