This butterfly is a tease.
Everyday, he alites on my hanging basket, right out my kitchen window. He is huge, almost as big as my hand. Evey time I see him, I run for my camera and head out to shoot him. He waits untill I am just about ready to snap him and off he flutters. This shot was taken by telephoto from the otheside of the yard. I dont know if he is camera shy. I am not happy with this photograph my friends. I really want a nice close up of him on my colourful flowers. Does anyone have any idea of how to atract a butterfly?
In matters of non-flutteryness.....
I used to be an avid fiction reader. Even as a kid/teen friends would get annoyed with me because i'd rather stay home and read than go out with them. When our family went on holidays, we always brought a big box of novels from the library, and we would lay on the beach all day reading and around the campfire reading at night.
I havent made time to read much fiction in the last couple of years. Going to college, and being swamped with studies, made reading the last thing I wanted to do. Also I became so hooked on blog reading, that it sort of replaced my interest in novels. Well, a few weeks ago I picked up a novel for the first time in months and really enjoyed it. I reread To Kill a Mockingbird. My daughter was reading it for school and kept talking about it. So I ended up reading it too. That hooked me back on the old lust for printed fiction again.
I just finished this novel by Luanne Rice. Called Crazy in Love. Its the second book I have read by her. She sets her stories on the New England Coast. This was a story about family and the dynamics within three generations of women. Its definately a "chick book". My husband would read this and say..."but nothing happened!" Its more about getting to know the characters and falling in love with them.
So now that I am hooked again, its off to the library for me. While I am out, I may see if I can find a butterfly net!!!!
