Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Brown Argus


Brown Argus

Little butterfly

Thinking about you
I wonder can I find you?
And you just showed up!

This haiku is actually describing what happened yesterday at the local children’s farm. I was wondering whether i could find an Argus butterfly in a field of flowers and the moment i had this thought, i saw (what turned out to be) a Brown Argus. Really cool small butterflies with a blue touch. And so i’m very happy with the result πŸ™‚

Yesterday while enjoying the lovely weather in the garden, this green/yellow friend came and visit the garden. Luckily it stopped right at the hedge. I had my camera with telelens ready so i could capture it. The light was a bit harsh, but some post-editing made the light a little softer.. Have a great insect hunting season.. just one thing: only hunt with the camera πŸ˜‰
