“By cultivating the beautiful we scatter the seeds of heavenly flowers, as by doing good we cultivate those that belong to humanity.” — Robert A. Heinlein
I was headed into the forest this morning to take photographs of the bluebells – you can see them in the background – when this happened. What a lucky capture! It’s difficult to focus on something so small that it almost isn’t there – while it’s moving. Post processing consists only in a minor adjustment of colour.
This red admiral butterfly landed just outside my back door. My kids were fascinated to see his proboscis in the dandelion sucking up the nectar.
