Elusive Beauty


*Click on pictures for a closer view …





Infrequent visitor to the butterfly bush, faster than most and hair trigger to a finger touching the flower he’s feeding on …

Unless he’s actually engaged, focussed, on eating. Contained. Then you have to be it, to get it, the shot. A matter of focus.

Never met a fly with mental issues – born of self reflection and the imperative to realise peace of mind.

Colourful, unpredictable little thing … wild elusive beauty.


I am not what passes, and every-thing passes in time, becomes past.

Except for this time, now. Now is always now, it never passes, never changes.

What is always now is the space every thing passes in.

Seeing it is doing it, a guided mystery.

Of wild beauty being.

    Great detail and really wonderful color all around. Can’t tell on the first one; is that orange and yellow its face or is it all covered with pollen?

      Thanks David. That’s the colour and face fur, you should be able to tell from #1 or the last.

    Beautiful iridescent and gold little beastie. Those Buddleias have done you well for enticing your subjects and they look so colourful in the shots. Mine all died :/

    My house sold and am now officially “of no fixed abode” house sitting. I need to look for a source of plants and plant one in each house I stay in :)
