I’d decided to take a couple of macro shots of miniature roses and wanted to concentrate on capturing shots of bees as they flew around pollinating the plant. As I moved over to another section of the bush to look for bees that might be in a great spot, I noticed this butterfly and managed to get in close and take two shots of it before it flew away and the opportunity was over.
It’s the first time I’ve photographed this type of insect. Research suggested it was some type of Australian Skipper Butterfly.
