Dragon Fly on Birdsfoot Trefoil

This is a dragon fly resting on a piece of Birdsfoot Trefoil.  Photographed early in the morning, the dragonfly and flower are still covered in dew.  It is hard to see in this size, but I am picking up reflections of the sky in the dew drops.

This photo was obviously not shot recently :)   I will be mixing recent photos along with photos from last year that did not get post, though should have during my bouts of non posting. Feel free to comment on some of the photos.

This is the full colour version of yesteday’s photo which I had converted to black and white except for the orange in the buttefly’s wing.

I found this butterfly on this piece of grass just beside the car. We were parked on the side of the road where we had stopped to photograph Lubilia. I am sure he was there when we parked and I missed him. Definitely one of those lucky finds!

Waiting to Take Flight

A butterfly sits perched atop a piece of dewy grass awaiting to take flight after a night’s rest. I converted this photo to black and white in Photoshop then added back in the orange from the butterfly’s wings.  This was done for a Facebook competition. i will post the full colour version tomorrow.
