Macro Moments: Week 1

A big thank you to Susan at Musin’ with Susan for her Macro Moments Challenge:Week 1 

For my first post for this challenge I’ve chosen a shot of a Common Blue butterfly taking nectar from a Birdsfoot Trefoil flower. I hope to spend a lot of time again this summer lying down watching these tiny creatures feeding and basking in the sunshine (that’s the butterflies I mean, though I don’t mind the odd bit of feeding and basking too).

I always say that life isn’t so bad when you can spend hours eyeballing butterflies.

I hope you like this image:
