A Challenge

Saturday, August 9th 2014

Taking photographs was a challenge today.  Zoom - so as not to disturb the butterfly; in focus - click - and the result, a beautiful blade of grass with the butterfly behind!  The wind had blown things around!

Next was a Small Skipper on Devil's Bit Scabious and after dodging about between the waving grasses everything stayed still.

 In the sunny glades Speckled Wood butterflies were flitting around, some defending their territories.  Others were resting in the sunshine and being sheltered so a photograph was possible.
