“Summer’s Day Scene”
I spotted this little brown butterfly in the garden beds at Civic Park in Newcastle, Australia while I was taking macro photographs. I only had a few seconds to capture it quickly a couple of times before it flew away – I crouched down and leaned in a little bit to shoot at an angle that increased the amount of colour in the blurred background.
