Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

I spent an hour at Lavandula the other day and met thousands of butterflies and bees. These Small White butterflies (typically known here as ‘cabbage moths’) were kind enough to dance for the camera.

Photography for me is a way of trying to make sense of the world, or at least to slow down and look at things a little more closely.

    Great timing Georgie, they must have been full of the heavy scent of all that lavendar !

  • Thanks Trudi, I think they really were in their element! It was so hard to catch them (lots of others didn’t work at all) but this trio were right where I wanted them and gave me enough time to get the shot!

    Oh this is just DIVINE G!!! LOVE it :))

  • oh thanks so much Di, lucky they were in just the right spot as I almost always shoot with a big aperture and it’s hard to get tiny things at a distance in focus!
