my photo


A scattering of leaf debris you may be thinking, but look closely and you will see a Speckled Wood butterfly. This beautiful woodland butterfly is fond of sunbathing, but not for long at a time, this one perhaps being a little camera shy, just would not sit still for a second.

I would say I was fortunate as to not being overlooked in my garden. With all the butterfly chasing I have been doing lately, may well have started some serious rumours, hinting I am some kind of mad woman, taken leave of her senses!

Mad woman or not, you 'capture' things that would pass most of us by, and then share them. I love that! I had to click on the pic and enlarge it to find the butterfly! D x
