Default same old, same old....

The weather was glorious so went out to my favorite botanical garden, but alas, it was not a good day. First of all, the place was full of young screaming school kids on an outing. Didn't really get a chance to look for interesting subjects before I ran out of SD card memory!!!!



Look at this pathetic poor butterfly! Wings all torn up and only one antenna, although he was quite feisty so I think he's healthy..... It was this kind of a day.




Reliable honeybees!

Haha, that is a great shot of the worlds ugliest butterfly. I really do like the shot though, nice uncluttered picture with great bokeh, it really made the butterfly pop out.

Good ol bees, always happy to pose for some photos. All of them are nice shots Saly.

Don't you just hate having the peace and quiet broken?? Lovely shot of the poor butterfly and the honey bees. I am noticing quite a few exhausted worker bees in my garden at the moment. I think they are loading up on what is left of the flowering shrubs.

Thanks guys, and yes, this little butterfly is definitely a fighter! Just to give you an idea of his size, the white flower he's on is only about 1/4" (1cm) across.

Hi Saly, there is nothing "same or old" about your shots. A stunning series and I am always in awe of the level of clarity you achieve in your shots. The last shot is super. Oh the poor wee butterfly, bless his furry wings. I hope he goes on to live a long butterfly life. You keep the shots coming.

Shame about the noisey children ......... the phrase children should be seen and not heard springs to mind
