Very Good Wild Flower Guide,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: British Wild Flowers: A photographic guide to every common species (Collins Complete Guide) (Paperback)
I'm a keen photographer and I purchased this book to help me identify the wild flowers I'd taken pictures of.
The book is very well written and nicely presented, with good images of each flower. It would have been nice to include a few more images of the flowers in various stages of growth, but I guess that would have made the guide more expensive.
Obviously, as I don't know the name of the flower I'm looking for in the guide, I find myself flitting from page to page quite a lot, visually searching for the flower I've taken a picture of. This can become tiresome, and it could lead you to miss an ID! I guess the book could have been organised in such a way to avoid this happening - by leaf type, flower size, colour etc.
However, I've used the guide on multiple occasions, and have managed to identify everything I've looked for so far. Therefore, I'd definitely recommend this book!
