Cees Mid Week Challenge (CMMC) ….. Close up or Macro


Not a true Macro shot, and not a shot that was planned.  The tiny Blue Butterfly landed on the Ivy next to me yesterday.  It is no surprise that it is known as a Small Blue, it lives up to its name by being only about 25mm in size. Nor is it a regular visitor to our garden or even in our locality…. so it was, let’s say, a BIG surprise.

I did have my camera with me.  I had to take a quick shot. It had to be quick shot, no time to change lens.  With a hyperactive Butterfly, constantly moving and constantly shivering (the fur like under edge of the wings vibrating) it had to be quick – one shot and gone.

So, there you have it, my submission for Cees Midweek Challenge on Close-up or Maro.

    1. Yes, there does seem to be more, and they do move fast, even when on a leaf they never seem to really settle, always a quiver. On yesterday’s walk I spotted at least 4. Nearly tempted to say that I have seen more Blues this spring than any other Butterfly…. encouraging 🙂
