Seafaring Butterfly

This unusual photo of a butterfly flying over water captured my imagination. As soon as I saw it on Sunday evening I felt compelled to write a poem so this wannabe poet swung into action, spending two or three hours labouring over the words to express my feelings about the scene.

Flying in Dunedin NZ

Winged Visitation

These colourful butterflies just blew me away yesterday. I was stunned by the colour and creative artistry!

Sunset Silhouette... Continue Reading →

A Tree Fern and an Eagle

Looking in a folder of photos, this tree fern and eagle hit me in the eye. They seemed to complement each other perfectly. To me they create this primeval vibe of Gondwanaland that I don't get seeing either subject on its own. Harks back to ancient times and sends a shiver down my spine... Tree... Continue Reading →
