Love These Creatures … January 2013

A newcomer to my garden in March 2011, this beauty returned several times to the Buddleja to drink.
Seen on that one day only at Batemans Bay, on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia.

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.
I am retired, beyond threescore years and ten.

    Wow Trish I would never have called this beautiful butterful ‘common’. A beautiful image.

  • Thanks so much for viewing and for your lovely comments !
    It seems that many beautiful creatures are somehow labelled “common”.

    Nicely positioned there on the flower. Great capture Trish.

  • Thanks Michael !
    Over 100 shots … the first half no good at all because it was high up against background glare, but fortunately it eventually decided it was safe to feed from a lower bloom :)
