Blue Monday: Butterfly Kisses

The Doric Longwing butterfly has the most wonderful markings. The beautiful blue open wings and what looks like a lipstick kiss mark on the underside. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

I think one of the most graceful sights in all of nature is a bird in flight! From the smallest; our little goldcrest, who flits about so quickly among the trees and shrubs it’s hard to keep track of them, to one of our largest; the grey heron, with a giant wingspan that allows them to soar for miles traveling between bodies of water. I can never tire of watching birds in the wild! This weekend I will be doing my bit to help the RSPB collect data that is so important in conservation work, The Big Garden Birdwatch. Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing this weekend, perhaps you can find just ten minutes to stop and watch the birds too!
