HeyJude who runs a great website The Earth Laughs in Flowers has invited us to go out into our gardens in the month of April and take some close-ups.
I thought I’d have a go even though flower photography isn’t my strong point. So I dutifully took a daffodil, and then luckily I saw a peacock butterfly and some bees.
I’d learn to learn a bit about bees this year now that I am beginning to fully realise how essential they are for our food supply. I bought a chart showing all the common ones, but to my untrained eye a lot of them look pretty similar. Hence the macro photography of bees as I am hoping that sitting with a photograph on the screen and with the chart beside it, it might be
a bit easier slightly possible. I’ve given up with trying to identify moths as there are over 4,000 kinds in UK (mainly brownish and nocturnal too). Now butterflies, on the other hand come only in 57 (yes, exactly 57) varieties in UK. I am a keen photographer of butterflies as some are also quite big and they sit still.
