Wolfram thinks this is a Lycopodium obscurum.
Google says Juniper tree.

If I could tell them it was found in Pembrokeshire woodland they'd know those answers were wrong.

But I can't, so I'm back to guessing unknown attributes and scrolling through an endless haze of mature pink flowers trying to figure out if any of them match what this bastard thing might become.

"This" being a photo that refuses to attach, which probably means there's something wrong with thumbnail generation.

Commonly known as Yorkshire fog, (plus a bunch of other names). It certainly looks like that, and is supported by Wikipedia's assertion of "Holcus lanatus in its natural habitat is a food source for butterflies such as the speckled wood..." - because that's what the flying caterpillar sitting on it is.

Thanks. :)

I used the "Picture This" app for that.
It only gives a few free searches though.

And appears to work with a browser except the upload icon just prompts to install the mobile app. :@

So, got a picture of a bird at a place that had an list of names on a board - which, excluding the ones I knew, means it's almost certainly one of seven.

Wolfram's Image thing said wheatear, which is a candidate and a regular image search for wheatear agrees (and matches closer than any of the other six, despite mostly all being chats), as does Wikipedia.

Hooray for simple victories! (dance)

Fun fact: wheatears are not named after cereal grain, but a corruption of the descriptive term: white arse.

Exactly how far ahead of the Coronvirus curve are you, Peter? Does your favourite pizza topping cure it?

The photo was taken three and a half years ago.
