Throughout June I’m continuing to take part in the Wildlife Trusts 30 Days Wild challenge, a yearly event that encourages people to get out into nature and to perform a random act of wildness in order to strengthen their connection with the natural world.

Here are my random acts of wildness for days 6-10:

Day 6: the fascination of clouds

Most of these last 5 days have been characterised by rain, so I’ve actually been dodging raindrops all week, but day 6 of 30 Days Wild had some wonderfully dramatic clouds rolling through that I just had to spend some time photographing.

just give me a blue sky and

some daisies, some birdsong

and the buzz and click and

burr of flitting insects among

a froth of pink and gold

grasses, whilst damselflies

dance with predatory grace

and butterflies bask with

wings wide on red clover,

bees trundling amidst newly

bristling knapweed, all in a

green space brimming with

life, and as serenity embraces

me, happiness shall be mine

  1. Thanks for sharing your lovely shots- that fuzzy periwinkle butterfly/moth is my favorite, I think! I love the idea of spending a month with nature- maybe the animals will be extra willing to be spotted when we drive through the mountains next week?!

    1. Thanks for visiting, Anne! I’ve been really enjoying my 30 days wild. I actually look forward to it coming around every year, and with being off work this year, it’s even more enjoyable than usual.
