Monday Macro

My last week of work starts very soon this morning. A mix of early and late shifts, so blogging might be a bit erratic.


Anyway, for today, while I have a few macro's, here's another butterfly. This species is a lovely little visitor to my garden every year.



Holly Blue


Have a good week.

  9. The Holly Blue lays its eggs on ivy so it's worth looking there if you can find the same branch!

  12. Thanks Scriptor. The bottom of my garden is covered in ivy, and gets wilder every year. A haven for insect life.

  13. They are not easy to find and even more difficult to photograph, nice macro Keith. Don't over do it this week at work. (They can't sack you)
