Skipper Butterfly,and purple-tipped stamena

Using the Nikon D3000, on auto, but I set the lens on 55 mm.


Yellow banded Dart, on mint blossom, by my back door.


Isn’t the mint blossom gorgeous with all those little purple tips on the stamena.

Have good day.   🙂




I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. The first one I did with that pale background was a bee, and I got real excited, imagining what I might be able to do when I know what I’m doing! Thanks for your kind words Tess.


  1. The first photo is such perfection. What a beautiful image against the neutral background, Christine. The mint blossom really stand out along with the butterfly. Well done!
