Cottongrass, Great Ayton Moor

Back on the North York Moors for a day and a run with the dog in the morning. Cottongrass is a plant that livens up the moors with its bobbing seed heads even in the slightest breeze. It’s a common plant which is found throughout the Northern hemisphere on acidic soils.

Captain Cooks Monument on Easby Moor can be seen in the far distance.
