Every year our local zoo has part of their large conservatory transformed into a butterfly paradise. Every year we go to experience these beautiful animals, and every year I try to get a good photo of the Large Blue Morpho Butterfly, and every year I fail. I fail because these butterflies do not sit still long enough to get a tack sharp photo. Last year’s best attempt was the photo below. The butterfly was sat on a window and I ended up more with a silhouette photo. Thanks to some work in Lightroom I managed to bring out some of the butterflies’ colours and patterns. I hope to do better this year!

You know summer is in full swing when the canola fields are in full bloom!
We are lucky that we have plenty of these fields all around us, which always reminds me of my childhood. Our six weeks of summer holidays in Germany were always accompanied by these bright fields. My uncle, who was a part-time beekeeper, would have his hives near the fields and the honey was just the best.
I always find that the yellow fields are looking there best before or just after a storm (of which we get plenty during the summer).
Another shot from our recent Caribbean vacation, this time a sunset shot. Sunsets, and sunrises, are amazing, no matter where in the world you are! They are always worth sticking around for.
Not quite right, but you get the gist. These two fully individuals were having a good time on a sunny winter day. Seconds after this shot they were off again chasing each other.
Came across these hare tracks in the woods the other weekend (looks like they were running late….).
Winter is slowly arriving in the Canadian Rockies…
