A blog about what I love….photography and bicycles!

Boxing Day and Grey Skies



Boxing day was spent taking my girls to the local game reserve (Umgeni Valley) for them to test drive their new bicycles.  I dropped them off and dissapeared into the bush with my camera.  It was a drak and gloomy day as you can see from the Panarama below.

We did however find some beautiful butterflies.  The first, Kedestes macomo (the Macomo ranger) was a first for me with the camera.  Unfortunately the insect had a blade off grass in front which all but ruined the picture.

Below are a few more insects that I came across on an otherwise rather dark and dingy day.
