Day 356 of my ‘A Photo A Day’ project.

Today was a very busy Saturday! I first went into town shopping with a friend for a few hours where I didn’t buy a single thing, so I’m not sure if you can really call it shopping. When I returned home I planned to go to the same friends house to play on a new computer game he’d bought, but wanted to find a photo to take quickly whilst the weather was nice and the light was still good. I picked up my camera and stepped outside into the garden. As soon as I started to walk along the patio I noticed this butterfly fluttering around me, so I stopped for a minute to see what it would do. It landed on the plant from Day 220 which was literally right next to me, then opened it’s wings to bask in the warm sunlight. I managed to get nice and close to it to take this macro shot of its face and wingspan… another photo that was meant to be!

    “Ready for take of…”

  • haha! I thought the same thing! I’m glad it didn’t though before I’d managed to photograph it :)
