warm sun on my face,
birdsong in my ears,
peace settled in my soul:
what more could I need?
On day 327 of 365 Days Wild I walked down to the dandelion filled nature project.
The birds were singing in the hedgerows, bees were meandering between flowers, and butterflies were flying their patrols around the space.
I spotted the first of the Speckled Wood butterflies, newly emerged in the warming weather. For most of my outing I had no luck in photographing them – until I was about to leave the meadow, anyway. This butterfly flew twice around my head before settling in the hedge right next to me, in a perfect position for being photographed.
