Flutterings

Another quick potter round the garden after getting home from work today. Sadly my head started to really ache soon after so I’ve only just got round to blogging them now it’s eased. I was chasing butterflies on the Buddleia, and got these few shots. Not all that great, but I was pleased to capture them at all. The Buddleia is mainly flowering at the top of tall stalks which are a bit too high up to get good shots when butterflies land on them – hence the odd angles of the first 2 shots. The Whites were landing on lower flowers, so I got better shots of them.

Not the best shot of a Peacock Butterfly but the best I could do in the circumstances

Again not the ideal position for a shot of this Red Admiral Butterfly but I was glad to get a shot at all so I was happy

This Large White Butterfly posed quite helpfully, which is a change as normally the whites are most skittish
