Taken during one of my daily walks through the fields here in Dorset, which are filled with the Purple of Thistles and dozens of these tiny butterfly/moths fluttering from one flower to the other,also what we used to call ‘bloodsuckers’ as children, no idea what they really are, but again the wild flowers are covered in them, no wonder the dog and me have a good scratch when we get home lol!

Taken with a Pentax Optio RS100 Compact camera on Super Macro

    How did you get the insects to arrange themselves just so?Must be the result of your rapport with the natural world. Great shot.

  • Once I get the dog away it is reasonably easy, the flowers are so tall that I just stand there and keep shooting, of course with with my pocket camera, what else ; Thanks Bette x
