A wet meadow near Pont Faen

I started this a few days back but didn't finish. Nothing very special - a hot day in a wet meadow!

With Ragged Robin
Ragged-Robin, Carpiog y gors or Silene flos-cuculi
Fool's-water-cress, Dyfrforonen swp-flodeuog or Apium nodiflorum
(which I hadn't pohotographed flowers of in the wild before)

Abundant Corn Mint with no sign of the more usual (for us) Water-mint.
Corn Mint, Mintys yr âr or Mentha arvensis

And another Gall. This may be Geocrypta galli or Dasineura hygrophila but we didn't look inside to see the larvae so can't be sure.
Fen Bedstraw, Briwydd y fign or Galium uliginosum (with gall)

A few patches of:
Great Burnet, Bwrned mawr or Sanguisorba officinalis

And earlier in the day we encountered this strking fungus in the gloom of a pine woodland.
Yellow Stagshorn or Calocera viscosa (I think)
