Photo-a-Day (Monday, 4th September, 2017)
Nothing common about the butterfly or the photo,they are both brilliant David !
Isn't that just a beautiful little butterfly..cornflower blue..thank you David,
another feast for the eyes.
Lovely pic - he's a beauty!
I have never seen a 'Common Blue' butterfly before these recent photos they are beauties!
So fragile but so beautiful.
Just perfect David, it has made my day.
Fantastic detail. Well done, David...
I know nothing about photography David, but would this have been taken using a macro facility? To me, the humbling aspect of nature is the fact that this tiny creature could never be recreated given the entire defence budget of the U.S. government and that of the Soviet Republic combined. It brings to mind the hymn we sang at infant school, ' All things bright and beautiful '. Good picture. Respect. Ozy.
Good one David
As always David - beautiful. Thank you
How true, Ozy!-and a fact that many of our so-called leaders might take notice of!
Lovely picture David, I probably should have said that first; my apologies!
Good one David
Good one David. Can you please tell me exactly where tis is, I lived in Aspull for most of my life but Aspull Sough will not register with me. Thanks.
Ozy the lens on my camera has a long 600mm zoom, at 600mm it can focus on something one metre away. It's not a proper macro but good enough for snapping shots of these beauties.
Ken I don't think Aspull Sough is the correct name for the area I was in so if you or anyone else knows the proper name I'd like to know it. Behind Canon Sharples school are the Aspull Sough treatment works ponds. I was in the meadow that is between the ponds and Haigh Plantations.
It wont be there now Ken R it will have fluttered off
The correct name is the Great Haigh Sough and is still there.
