The longer we live in Fethiye, the more interested we become in all that’s around us. Over the years, whenever we go trekking, I’ve started to take an interest in the flora and fauna of the area but that comes with a slight problem in that I don’t own any books (I really must buy one) on the subject. Yes, we have the mighty Google at our fingertips these days. We can ask the internet whatever we like…but we need to know what to ask it.
Instead, we’ll make use of the power of the internet today by asking for your help. A few weeks ago, just before the really hot temperatures kicked in, we set off on the trek from Fethiye to Kayaköy with friends. It was actually too hot to do the walk, so a couple of us made regular drink stops to catch our breath and that also meant we noticed more of the flora and fauna around us. Unfortunately, my friend has as much (little) knowledge as me when it comes to wildflower identification.
Back in late winter, we did the beautiful walk from Kayaköy to Af Kule and a few readers were kind enough – and knowledgeable enough – to comment on the post and name some of the flowers I photographed on that walk. So today, we’d like to ask for your help again.
These are photos of flowers I took on the day we did the walk and we have no idea at all what any of them might be. Once I get an idea of what they are, I can make myself a little chart and actually learn what it is that I’m taking pleasure in photographing. Don’t forget, you can click on the photo to enlarge it. I know a couple of the shots are not great but it was a very sunny, breezy day and the flowers didn’t want to sit still while I hovered over them with my camera. Thanks in advance to anyone who can impart any knowledge!
