Evening Blue

By chase
I went back to the Nature Reserve yesterday evening hoping that the little Blues would be nice & peaceful in the low light.
This one was just sitting around on the grass at the edge of the beck,the light hitting the opposite bank made for a good bg I thought.
I fought through clouds of mozzies.....why is it that they follow you wherever you walk ? ...& bitten despite the anti mozzie spray Sad
Worth it for that pretty light though Smile

If you look real close you can see a Spider's web just infront of the Butterfly..looks like it's just about to walk the tightrope !

1/60th sec

Thankyou for taking the time to look.

Very nice Janet, the background really makes the grass and butterfly stand out, well worth the odd mozzie bite.
