Butterflies are Tricky
Photographing a butterfly is more difficult than herding the proverbial cats. There are more butterflies here this season than I can ever recall, but this photo is the best I have managed so far. And I dont even know what it is. It is much bigger thaln the usual little brownish Wanderers and much brightly coloured.
An old school friend Alan McRae, who is a keen photographer, turned up here this week after going AWOL for the last forty years or so! Alan recommended putting butterflies in the fridge to slow them down first. Hmmm. It was wonderful to see Alan, but for now I will perservere with less drastic measures.
