I have spent a good part of today photographing a dead butterfly. I thought I could get some macro practice on something that wouldn’t run away. Apparently, I need a lot more practice. They didn’t come out well at all. Still, I think Gobby here has something to say.

I am not sure if this is a wasp or a bee or something completely different. I was nervous in case it was one of those and if it tried to sting me as I used my macro and had to get in close to it.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and to all of the single parent mums out there. Being a father is nowhere near an easy job, but a very rewarding one. My kids are both Teens so I have it easier in some respects – and much harder in others as parents out there will no doubt agree. It doesn’t stop me from loving my kids, and they will always be my children, even when they are in their forties.
Anyway, I was lucky to take a shot of this seagull as it went past me today.
As I went out today, I decided to see if there were any bees or butterflies round the corner in a little habitat that has been designed for them. Whether there were or not, I have no idea as it was too windy to find out. I did find a spider though, but decided against using it as it was all scrunched up. I did manage to capture this in a brief calm of the wind.
