STEP 4 :
there are many orchids among the typical flowers of the chalk grassland.
For example, the Fly Orchid takes its name from the resemblance of the flowers
to an insect, which have landed on a stalk.
Another pink flowered plant grows in Giverny : the Montpelier Milk-Vetch.
This Mediterranean species is extremely rare in Northern France.
STEP 5 :
Here you can find deadwood but it is found wanting in most of the managed forests.
This is a threat for the rich and original biodiversity like insects,
birds or mushrooms insofar as the forest suffers a loss af habitats and food.
Oaktrees have a funny form like a little basin..
STEP 6 :
Chalk grassland is composed of plants, which are used to the drought and poor soil.
On a Mahaleb Cherrytree, you can find a great butterfly named Scarse Swallowtail.
The female lays its eggs on this shrub, but if the hillside is timbered,
the shrub, which needs a fair amount of sunlight, will disappear,
and so will thi butterfly.
