Zoom in on the wings

around here nature seems to be in abundance - leaves and flowers in profusion, the chicks on the river, and lots of critters flitting amongst the leaves


I was aiming for the beautiful butterfly but when editing the photo I spotted the fly I captured too.

Lovely to see lots of butterflies around at the moment - they look lovely and they are a great excuse to keep some weeds as good butterfly habitat.

Wondering what everyone else has captured this week

That's a very pretty one, Helena - we just seem to have cabbage whites up here ...

Jealous of your beautiful butterfly - haven't spotted any here ... but then I haven't planted any peas or cabbages!

I love that what you have captured here with these two pictures isn't just the butterfly, but that feeling we get when we decide to creep closer to something like a butterfly in the hope that we can get a closer look

Great shot of the butterfly. I can't seem to get mine to sit still long enough for a portrait. :-)

You just know that that butterfly was mad at having its portrait photo-bombed by that fly!

Linking up today with a scene I also captured in the sunshine.

Butterflies are too elusive for me at the moment. We have lots of cabbage whites but yesterday I saw two of those tiny little blue ones. A lovely ZIZO again Helena.
