    Pressed the telephoto lens into service as a macro for this Ringlet butterfly...


    Couldn't get both eye and wing in focus at the same time, so chose the one with the eye. The wing spots give a decent bokeh.

    Nice to see a decent number of butterflies about yesterday, though the b*ggers would not sit still for a photo!

    I see them around here every year and have quite a few photos of them, mostly resting with their wings open. I don't seem to have any online though so can't post them.
    Don't worry, be happy.

    Carried it in full, then carry it out empty.

    That's the annoying thing, Sandy. I prodded a finger at that guy a couple of times to try and get him to pose wings-open, and he flitted about a bit, but every time he came to rest, it was wings-closed!

    You're lucky to see one of those, at least you would be in my neck of the woods, just one in a lifetime. Excellent photo.

    Cheers Col, Aye not far, seen one last year but never got a shot, was back at the same place yesterday and got a couple of images of it, but not great, so went back this morning, turned up at the same flowers twice, but there not easy to get focus on, even when there hovering in front, but managed around a dozen decent ones, was at Abercorn Church, just as you go through the gates, there's a seat at the side of the museum, just sat there watching the flowers for it.

    A few from the cycle path today...

    Good flush of wood mushrooms...




    The damsons/bullaces continue to ripen, nicely...


    Common or yellow toadflax... always looks like some kind of alien to me...


    Tansy...


    The 'urban rewilding' meadow they accidentally mowed last year has been reseeded...
