I am an amateur photographer who takes a walk nearly every day with my camera shooting whatever interests me.

When I get home I peruse my images until I find the ONE that will go into my Redbubble portfolio that day.

Please stop by and see what I added today.

    This is gorgeous!! We have various Hairstreaks in Britain, from Purple, to ‘White Lettered’, but nothing like this. (Well, we haven’t got a Colorado here either so I suppose it makes sense ;-) Super image and well deserved features!!

  • Thank you so much. I can’t take to much of the credit though as he just kept posing and even returned the next day for more shots. Haven’t heard from him though since I cut him the check for modeling (all the pollen he could take with him).

    It looks like the well-paid Hairstreak streaked off rapidly after his pollen pay-cheque, April. I hope you see him again!
