Structure

This week’s photo challenge is structure.

Hoverfly on ragworth

Hoverfly on ragworth

I chose this photo for two reasons. Firstly, I like the detailed structure of the ragworth flowers, in particular the difference between those fully open and those just beginning to unfurl their petals. Secondly, I enjoy watching pollinators and the colours of this little hoverfly mean you really notice the structure of it’s abdomen.

Ooh, Shiny – Weekly photo challenge

Bees, butterflies, pretty flowers – stop me in my tracks every time. I could try a gallery of all, but decided to stick to some of our wonderful Irish butterflies.

Ireland has 32 resident and 3 common migrant butterfly species. Europe-wide many butterfly species have suffered declines in recent years (Report).

In Ireland, you can contribute all butterfly sightings to the Butterfly Atlas 2021 project being coordinated by the National Biodiversity Data Centre.
