I’ve fulfilled an ambition of mine and managed to take a picture of a butterfly resting with its wings open.
I was inspired to try and get a shot of a butterfly resting in this position following the reaction to this image, which I took a few weeks ago. I got so many positive comments on social media that I simply had to head out to the same patch of meadow to see if I could improve on it. As I’ve said, this time my aim to was to get a snap while the butterfly rested with its wings open.
My eldest daughter came with me. She had her camera and together we took loads of shots of flowers, plants and butterflies.
Butterflies make for magnificent photographic subjects, but they move very, very fast. It’s not easy to get an image of them and this was the only usable pic I got.
I hope you like this image, which I have linked to the magnificent #MySundayPhoto linky hosted by the Photalife.com blog. It’s one of my favourite blogging linkies and I highly recommend clicking on the badge below to see some superb photography taken by other bloggers.
