There’s nothing quite so wonderful as chasing Spring butterflies around on a warm, sunny day! Brimestone butterflies were definitely in full bloom in the woodland last Friday. Seeing them dancing around the pink blooms of azalea was glorious and a perfect encounter to add into this week’s ShareMondays challenge.
This comma butterfly really did make me pause to enjoy it’s beauty in the bright, Spring sunlight. The lighting brought those wings to life as it posed on the tree blossom on Battleston Hill at RHS Wisley Gardens. Such joy! I just have to share this perfect moment for Wex Mondays today. Good luck to everyone entering!
Let’s start the Monday posts with a bright and cheerful floral image! It is Spring, really. The croci on the conifer lawn at RHS Wisley Gardens were glorious in the spring sunshine last week. Even in the snow on Sunday they were still popping with colour against the white blanket! I created this high-key image with an in-camera double exposure, zooming in on my subjects for the second exposure to accentuate the shaping of the flowers. It’s an image that makes me smile so I think it’s a good candidate for this week’s Wex Monday’s challenge.
