Flutter by…...

We haven't seen many butterflies this Summer - I'm not sure whether we are just in the wrong places and other folk are getting to see them!
We did see a huge dragonfly though, hovering along the path we take through the wooded part of our walk around the perimeter of our village!It seemed to follow us for a while before veering off. The sun was shining through the leaves and it looked so beautiful!

I wish I could have caught the shimmer on the wings!
I am linking (with crossed fingers) to Art Journal Journey for Elizabeth's great Summertime Love theme.

We are off to visit a garden today - hope we see some butterflies there! 
Have a great weekend!
Thanks for looking, Chrisx

I've noticed a lack of butterflies this summer, too, Chris. But your awesome dragonfly makes up for it, because this is a real beauty. I really like the background and even if I can't see it, I can envision the shimmer of the dragonfly wings. Thanks for sharing this with Art Journal Journey today.

Your dragonfly page is beautiful and how wonderful to see one whilst on you walk, it's always lovely to see them during the summer 😀. Happy Friday and have a great weekend! J 😊

Plant lots of Buddleias, they are just magnets for butterflies.
I have them everywhere as I love them, but they are not everyone's cup of tea.
It may be a bad year for butterflies, there is something about them in the news today.
Have a great weekend!

A lovely dragonfly page Chris, something we don't see locally very often.
Have a great weekend.

love the use of the dragonfly! I saw lots at Hampton Court last weekend, but that's cheating cos they were in the butterfly dome... one of the gardens had a resting dragonfly on a hedge, too!

Terrific page and always good to see a dragonfly in real life. Only seen a couple of butterflies so far this year but it is a bit early yet I think

Love Chrissie xx

I hope you get to see more butterflies too Chris, I was only thinking the other day how few there have been round the buddleas this year. Lovely page to record your dragonfly. Enjoy the weekend xxx
