Sometimes you go somewhere to do something and you discover something else that turns out to be even better :)
Yesterday I went to the Natural History Museum in London to see two exhibitions. One was about Mammoths and the other was 'Britain; One Million Years Of Human History'
As I arrived I discovered they had put up a Butterfly House for the summer in the grounds of the museum so I went in. Once my glasses and lens had stopped misting up I found myself
among hundreds of butterflies flitting about and sitting on me. It was quite magical. So I took some pictures and then I started to play. I just wanted to warn you I will be sharing these
pictures with you and they are not my usual thing. I was using my Macro lens at a shallow depth of field taking pictures of butterflies that were moving and flapping their wings. Obviously
there was a large amount of 'hit and miss' to this plan but I got a few images that I like. They are not great macro images. You will see thousand better here on DA but I hope mine capture the feeling of flying butterflies never at rest even when feeding. I hope they do anyway otherwise it just means they are just poor pictures :P I am interested to see what you think of them. :hug:

My next break is in four weeks time when I will be in Northumberland again and then I will be returning to Skye in November. These are my treats. They are what I live for :hug:

It is now time for me to thank you all again for your never ending and never waning support of me and my pictures. We all love to be told we have created something good but it is more than that. I love the feeling of family here. The close friendships I have formed with people I may never meet. The conversations, the notes, the love :heart: The inspiration I get from seeing all of your pictures and reading your words. It all makes for a very happy me. So with no further delay now I will share some of the many recent works I have loved and faved. As usual this is a fairly random selection from a wide range of artists from beginners to the highly experienced. I hope you will love seeing them. I have some new people to feature who I have recently discovered and who have discovered me. My family keeps getting bigger and I love it :heart:

We went to a butterfly house in Key West (although I've been to a couple others) that was so beautiful.  Taking photos of butterflies is a difficult task and I admire the many photographers who are able to capture them so well.  I haven't seen your photos yet but I'm sure they are just as good.
