Lunchtime Shooting


When I stepped out of the office at lunchtime today,  I thought that I had been transported to Dubai, it was that hot and sunny.

Alas I wasn't in Arabia, but the centre of Nottingham, and on the lookout for my next blog photo.

Unfortunately nothing really caught my eye, so I wandered back to work 'empty handed'. But then as I was walking through the grounds, I saw a butterfly, fluttering around one of the lavender bushes.

So I quickly whipped out my OMD, switched the lens to macro, and took a few photos. He certainly didn't stay very long on each of the flower heads, so I was actually lucky to get a fairly in focus shot. As the photo below clearly shows, they can certainly shift when they want to.
