Photographed by Sir Charles Burrell Bt near Chernobyl.  Charlie owns Knepp Castle estate in West Sussex, which under his inspired management is rapidly developing into a superb area for iris and betulae.  He uses dead snakes as baits.

Also, iris wasn't out today in Alice Holt Forest, Hants.  I checked the most popular territories, but I did see camilla in cop for only the second time ever (presumably blown out of the trees) -
