April Joy

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.

Have you been out and about recently? Let me know in the comments below.
