The Great Brain Training Exercise

Take pictures of wild flowers, then when you get home, search your books and the Internet for their ID - is a great way of exercising your brain.  The real exercise of the brain comes when you go out again, see these flowers again and then try to remember what they are.

I agree with the trying to remember the names, back out in the field. Not always easy. I'll have to start revising. lol
Lovely shots Linda

I don't know about a brain training exercise but I often find it a very frustrating venture, especially when so many plants and insects look so alike in photographs.
