I was pleased to bag a shot of a tiny Holly Blue butterfly in my garden this morning, having chased a Brimstone around without success. The butterflies and bees love verbena bonariensis – such a reliable self-seeder here and conveniently at head height for photographers with dodgy backs!
A non-buggy post tomorrow, I promise!
You are welcomed to check my gallery.
Awesome capture, Rachael. Beautiful colors
Thank you, Gracie.
Thanks, glad you like it.
amazing! just love this!
Thank you! 🙂
Oh, but I loved this buggy post. That’s the most beautiful butterfly I’ve ever seen. Like it much better than the flashy ones like Monarchs.
They are very pretty. Small but perfectly formed. 🙂
Beautiful shot! I love the little blue butterflies too! They seem much friendlier and ready to accept the extra attention.
Thanks. I agree!
Just read an article on how a photographer found a new species if insect in the Malaysian forest. You might know the photographer on Flickr by the name of Kurt, and it reminded me of how many insect photos you take, and maybe one day you will be the next discoverer!
Keep up the good work!
Hi Kevin. Thanks. I did see that on Flickr. It’s a super shot too. Maybe I will, although probably not in my back garden!
Classically beautiful and great Bokeh.
Thanks, Helen. 🙂
“Blue and green should never be seen,” I recall my mother saying in reference to some perhaps-unfortunate fashion statement of mine way back.
Humbug indeed. If nature puts them together, then it must be good. 🙂
