Lilac Visitor


As the Lilacs bloom each spring colorful visitors are drawn to the fragrant blossoms


The 100-400mm lens allowed me to shoot while not invading the butterflies comfort zone

The same is happening here Salty... I was sat at my PC on Thursday and saw four differnt butterfly in some shrubs outside... I have made it 'to do' task this year to shoot more butterflies and insects in general.

I have been catching up on many post and the one picture that stood out was the Sky Watch shot from the boat..
