“The caterpillar does all the work, but the butterfly gets all the publicity.”

I took some of these photos the other day and completely forgot about them, something else must have come up that same evening for me to blog about instead! So I grabbed a few more butterfly shots (the white ones) today to add to the blog post and keep the challenge alive… I was quite pleased with some of the detail captured actually.





I was hoping for some storm shots this evening especially with some of the weather stories of what’s happening a mere hour or so away (hailstorms and flash flooding!) but it’s all calm here which is probably a blessing anyway. I’ll be giving my camera a rest over the next few days in preparation for a Wedding on Saturday and also to the latter end of the week, getting bits into the house!

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
― Neil Gaiman

To combat the hot weather and the muggy-ness (and the 90% humidity) we’ve been blowing an industrial sort of fan from the doorway into the house to bring in some cool air. It works, a little bit – for example the other evening we used it to balance all the stuffing that Buddy had ripped from his brand new pheasant toy. Then we turned it on. Oh the fun!


But today it became a dragonfly lure, just before the second storm of the day hit we noticed that dragonflys were starting to hover around the back of the fan, lured by the blowy bits.

Unfortunately they were too quick for the camera and disappeared pretty sharpish when the rain came – to be fair I would have done too, it was heavy enough to knock birds out of the sky let alone dragonflys!

So I ended up shooting the rainfall instead, and that didn’t work out too badly either actually… I’ve tried photographing droplets since forever and just managed it randomly today.
