these little ones are the sure sign of Spring/Summer for me, just lovely on the underwing as well as their bit on sky on top
Anne— you know this was very funny for me as in strange. this is Kodak Z700 4mp pocket camera and they are the first images I tool with camera. i ws so determined to learn how to shoot these little ones that i was only intent on shooting. It was opver 3months later when I realized that not all blues are the same. My eyes couldn’t distinguih the wing markings.
and when i saw that I ahd captured many diifferent species fo blues with the little pocket, I was ecstatic—and that determined my choice of specialization for photogrpahy. Blame Nabokov because i was reading “Speak Memory” and wanted to see if I could shoot blues.
when i saw that I had different species, then it began serious discipline to master shooting them.
apologies for hands— I don’t have so much control over fingers anymore…
