this was CRAZY .. i went out walking with toddy hoping that when we got back i would get a photo of a butterfly .. which would be a miracle as they flit ALL OF THE TIME .. !! ..
when we got back i wandered into the long grass near my house .. there were stacks of these common brown butterflies flitting around .. in fact one landed on my arm .. got a couple of shots .. but my arm did nothing for the photo .. then one landed on the hand that was holding the camera ..
come on guys .. stop teasing me .. !! ..
i took some pics of a spider in its web .. and turned around and saw this butterfly quite close on a leaf ..
i moved very slowly and took a couple of shots .. then he flew away ..
thankyou little butterfly ..
no matter how this does .. i feel very happy ..
i went out wanting to get a pic of a butterfly and it happened .. talk about manifesting .. !! ..
