Mediterranean Wild Flowers

This is a growing collection of photographs of wild flowers, mostly Mediterranean.

I am not an expert in this field so please do tell me if I have not correctly identified any of the plants.

To help you with identifying wild flowers the galleries are arranged by the dominant colour of the flower.

Blue or purple (1)
Blue or purple (2)
Red or pink (1)
Red or pink (2)
Yellow or brown (1)
Yellow or brown (2)

..and just for fun, some flowers with insects, bees, moths, butteflies, etc. I have no idea what most of the beasts are so, if there is an expert out there, please help me with identification!

Flowers with insects

I am indebted to the books of Marjorie Blamey and Christopher Grey-Wilson which I have used to identify the wild flowers.
