TO BUTTERFLY OR NOT TO BUTTERFLY

I was not in the happiest frame of mind after two hours scouring leaves various for sleepy butterflies, not a one was there to be found. As dawn was breaking, or as it does round here, climbing from behind the hills I rattled off a couple of panoramas. The first is bright and cheerful, the second toned down a little for the more discerning amongst you.

Sorry if these take awhile to load they are 1.5mb each, the originals are 90mb. For some of you these views will not be new. I love these valleys and the limestone plateaus that surround them. The mood is ever changing so I make no apologies for publishing similar images.

Back to the butterfly hunt, non to be found as I've said but I did find this wee chap he's less than 1/4" long and was found on the ground. I picked him up and popped him on the daisy. Artistic licence I think is the term I'm looking for. Restrained by comparison with the first two images I think you'll agree.

WHAT AM I CALLED?

The next and final image is of, I hope, A Common Blue Butterfly taken a couple of days ago. Any other suggestions will be gratefully received, ecstatically received if they prove correct.

I know not what tomorrow will bring to the blog, I pray something exciting. All the best.

  1. I like the first two images-- both are beautiful.... however, the last two are outstandingly awesome! How's that for wrecking the English language? I can't decide which I like best. They are both incredible.

  2. Tricia, just wish I had your eye for a picture, composition of yours today is great.
    You stick to language mutilation I'll look after the scenic side. All the best A.

  4. Thanks, thought so but so long since we've seen them here. I wasn't sure. If you enjoyed to days, wait for tomorrows. Has your brother owned up to his senior moment. Good pictures of Damsel flies.
    I knew what they were doing, just the word escaped me.
