Green hairstreak and his bud.

in #photography16 days ago

A very patient little model. Or just very tired from looking open flowers.
It was early spring last year that I went to see whats in bloom. The Ulex was just about to open. Some flowers in more sunny spots already bloomed, but it was still early and not the warmest.

And then I saw this little green butterfly looking for a spot to sit on.
He chose perfectly right at the tip of the branch. Isn't that a photogenic spot?

Now that's what I call perfect timing. Being in the right spot at the right time and Bingo! You have just captured nature at its finest. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you!
I am sure I missed so many of them in the meantime. But this one I got just right :)

Wow! Look at those beautiful colors on that butterfly and I just love the first photo. : )

Thank you! He was very cooperative :)
And he is so cute with all the green.
