I took about a million pictures of this little guy. I found him on a leaf, having just shed his skin. His wings were all crumpled having just emerged. Within a couple of hours, he looked perfect.

Happily married mother to 3 beautiful little girls, who will pose for a photo at any opportunity. I’m a Nurse by day (and night) and scrapbooker in my spare time, photography has become my latest passion.

A novice, with no idea about the technical aspects of photography, I’m learning as I go. Thanks for looking at my work. Your comments and advice are always appreciated.

Happy Snapping,
Alison
