Wild? It's bleeding ferocious

Despite two hours pottering around the clearing, I somehow missed out on sloppy seconds of the shrike this afternoon. In an effort to maintain the non-bird photo theme I carefully stalked a pair of Wild Daffodil Narcissus pseudonarcissus (male on the right), managed to get to within just 15 feet before I backed out, didn't want to push my luck. Despite appearances they are famously unpredictable, can give a nasty bite and some populations are known to harbour the rabies virus.
