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?

IMG_3066Foxley Wood provided something for everyone yesterday – my first (second and third) butterfly spot of the year, some sunshine for Mark and many muddy puddles (and the odd stick) for Freya.

I was so excited to see butterflies again. As well as the comma we also saw a peacock and lots of very vibrant brimstones, which looked like they were glowing they were so bright (not a single one would stop for a photo).

Luckily this beetle was happy to pose.
