L is for Lepidopterology.
It is the study of butterflies and moths.
If that term applies to those that study them through the viewfinder then I am indeed a lepidopterologist.
I study them and they in turn, study me. And sometimes stick their tongues out at me.
And I return the favour.
Perhaps you think you’ve seen this pic before. That’s because it appeared on this blog many moons ago.
Today I went out in the garden and shot new pics of butterflies.
One even landed on my hand.
And it was delightful.
But I have yet to shoot a better photograph of a butterfly than the one I shot a few years ago.
Only this time it has graphics to boot.
The cover of a book I created and titled ‘Surprising Nature.’
But who was surprised? Them or me?
Perhaps the title page might help explain….
