My Sunday Photo – September 16th, 2018.

If this is the last butterfly I get to photograph this year, I don’t think I’ll be too disappointed. The comma, with its jagged wings and wonderful orange colouring, is one of my favourites. Also, I got to see a swallowtail for the first time in May so any butterfly beyond that was just a bonus.

My brother popped in yesterday, in between a business trip to Holland and returning to the US where he lives. We decided to go to Strumpshaw Fen to get him some fresh air before he is stuck on planes again.

Luckily it was a beautiful, warm day – and lots of little friends, along with the comma, were out to play.

I was also rather in love with the light in general, without wanting to sound too pretentious. Autumnal, would you say?

As always, I’ve joined in with Darren’s brilliant My Sunday Photo linky. Please click on the camera below to see what other people have submitted. It’s always worth it.

Also, if you have five minutes, please pop back tomorrow when I’ve got another Behind The Book post, this time featuring the wonderful writer and blogger, Lucy Mitchell. Just in case you missed the return of the series last week, following my summer break, here’s a link to my interview with Richard Balls.

Wishing you a lovely week.

  3. Hi Tara, I love that name; Strumpshaw Fen. It’s the perfect names for a pair of donkeys don’t you think. All the photos are lovely, but the dragonfly ones are my favourites. And the lighting is nicely gentle and soft.
