The Butterfly – not my usual subject type, but this one caught my eye, I stalked it for half the day I think, obviously I had nothing better to do, finally it sat still long enough for a photo!

I don’t know much about bugs, so don’t know what the name of that particular breed of butterfly is, but the flower is that of a lantana plant, a noxious weed in some states, but in SA it’s just a pretty plant that is unable to cause havoc due to our climate… in fact it’s almost hard to grow here!

Taken when I was about 15 with a 2mp Kodak easy share (yep, a handbag camera)

Adventures of a creative, curious country chick, with a few horses, lazy dog and insane cat in tow! Living the dream in rural Australia, my photos focus on the outback, horses, and the rural way of life… oh and a few pretty flowers along the way!

  • Thanks Georgie =) that’s one thing I really miss about the old kodak, even though it was infuriating in every other way, it sure packed a punch picking up colour!
