Butterfly Quest

Butterfly Quest

After my recent successes with the butterflies, although these were still a bit limiting,

I thought I’d try and get to the park earlier in the morning to see if I could photograph them when it was cooler and they were less active. A good idea in theory, but in practice it didn’t really work, the butterflies were hidden in at the bottom of the tall grasses and fell up as you walked, then hid again at the bottom of the grasses. Also, interestingly there were no Common Blue butterflies around.

I found this Meadow Brown on the pathway in front of me and it stayed long enough to a nice photo, so all was not wasted.

When I went again this morning, I had the same problem again, but was lucky enough to get a few photos of a kestrel hunting!
