To give my blog some structure in 2018, I’m jumping back into photo challenges. It’s always a great reason to pull stuff from the archives or boost creativity. And Cee’s photo challenges are, naturally, my first port of call. And what better place to begin than her Fun Foto Challenge.
So, I popped along to Cee’s, and discover I’ve been missing out on a wonderful twisty alphabet challenge – for it’s now up to T. The challenge, this week, have 2 Ts anywhere in the subject of the photo. Of course, butterfly jumped straight into my mind.

I took some wonderful, unexpected photos of an Eastern Spinebill this morning – but its name has only one T. Hmmm, what of its scientific name, I thought, bound to be a T or three in it. Somehow, it feels like cheating, but hey, just once will be okay.

So I trawl back through the photos I’ve taken recently, through oodles of blue-banded bees, white butterflies, the odd dried out landscape dotted with kangaroos, cockatoos, flowers, honey bees … there must be something with 2 Ts! Ahh, wire netting…

Fence posts, snails, magnolia, roses, honey bees, spider webs, tree trunk … like with the netting, I was playing with textures.

Is it not just begging to have some profound words plastered over it! Feel free.
I’ll finish with one last butterfly. I think it’s a rather ragged Correa Brown.

Thanks for looking.
