Butterflies and Dragonflies..

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.

2016K Challenge – Weeks 38 and 39

Week 38

Distance completed         =                   27.50 miles (44.30 km)

Distance to go                    =                   411.41 miles (640.41 km)


Week 39

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.
