I have been hoping to capture a shot of a butterfly for a while I was happy when this one landed and decided to stay put long enough for me to take some shots of it.
The other day, I went to collect something from my daughter’s school and as I was walking down an extremely steep hill, I had to stop. One of the reasons I started taking photos is because if someone just stops in the road, people will ask if they are alright. If someone stops and starts taking photos, they are ignored. So I stopped and looked around for something to photograph. There was a butterfly, and although I posted one photo last week of it, it wasn’t as close-cropped as these are.
This last week, I have been out and about with my camera (there’s a surprise) and I feel I have taken some of my best photos to date. I had to ask my daughter to choose which should be my photo of the week. I finally managed to get it down to two, one of the butterfly ones and the one that made it. I love all of these. The magpie about to leap from the fence was one that I particularly liked as well. The roses with the clouds, I stood at an angle so I took the shots from blow sa as to not capture any buildings in the backgrounds.
