Our now very light and sunny (weather permitting) patio is perfect for enjoying breakfast out of doors when the west wind is too chilly for sitting on the southwest terrace, – as it has been for the last couple of days.
Eating breakfast out of doors with butterflies flitting all around evokes a very summery feeling, – and with June just on the doorstep, – the hope of many more such moments to come.
I entertained myself at the breakfast table by pointing the camera and shooting some of the butterflies, using a full zoom. A lot of the photos were lousy, but I got a few that I liked.
The butterflies all seem to be of the same species, but are different individuals. The line pattern on the wings is quite fascinating, and would make a great quilting pattern, or maybe inspire a stained glass quilt.
