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

Raw file converted in Lightroom

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.
