A complex 100ft crop circle has turned up in a field of oil seed rape in Wiltshire, England.

The site is something of a hotspot for crop circles, this one features a floral pattern with six interlocking petals. "The start of the season is always exciting, I never know what's going to happen for the rest of the year," says crop circle expert Lucy Pringle.

"The unseasonably warm spring weather has not only brought forward many summer flowers - it has sparked the usual round of crop circles."

There was one that popped up near where I live, obviously a really amateur attempt, was really funny though!

Somebody's been drinking too much JD. Too wobbly and not symmetrical enough.

It's sad that people would think that crop circles are from aliens. They wouldn't waste their time on stupid stunts like this.

I enjoyed these videos.. A word of caution to anyone thinking about watching the videos on these links. After installing the required player I found that it included one or more "browser helper"s.

I like crop circles. They are as quintessential to the British summer as a pint of warm ale in the beer garden in an olde English country pub; or as a game of cricket on the pretty village green whilst the spectators sit on deckchairs supping cider; or as the pretty flowers which adorn the flowerbed at the foot of the village cross; or as an English Civil War re-enactment performed by tipsy men in colourful uniforms; or as Morris Dancers performing their stuff in front of admiring villagers and tourists, All of these, plus crop circles, are what you are guaranteed to see in rural England in th...
