I posted dragon fly pictures yesterday – I went out today and they were everywhere! I’ve walked this path for years and never seen any before, but I’m not complaining. They are fascinating to watch.
This one was a bit camera shy but I managed to get in nice and close. It was amazing seeing how the sun glinted off its delicate wings.
Eventually it did decide to pose – I think it was enjoying the warm weather.
And then I came home and this little beauty was parked on the wall of my garden shed.
I think it might be a Peacock Butterfly, although I’m not entirely sure.
I’ve no idea what these are and I hadn’t seen them before until today. Suddenly they were everywhere!
Distance completed = 27.50 miles (44.30 km)
Distance to go = 411.41 miles (640.41 km)
Distance completed = 22.20 miles (35.70 km)
Distance to go = 389.21 miles (604.71 km)
Despite the fact the miles are coming down I don’t think I’m quite going to successfully complete my challenge. Doesn’t matter though – I’ll see much I can do between now and the end of the year.
A couple of pictures I managed to take in the past hour or so.
I knew I was being watched…
My next idea is to start photographing some water droplets after a good shower of rain. Not an easy task I fear, but I’ve made a start. I think this could be a long-term project!
Took this today – these little beasties seem to love the dandelions!
