Hello again,  been a bit busy here so no blog posts for most of the month.  However I am hoping to get on here more over the next two months.   Summer hols are great for catching up.   Also I have been so inspired by lots of people recently so I am desperate to do some art!    So starting today I am going to try and do something for me every day!   Fingers crossed.

Anyway cornflowers,  I have a lovely group of them by my front fence and I sat for half an hour and got these amazing photographs.   I love the blue,  and the contrasting colours of the insects.

Wonderful bee eyes

A butterfly, a snail, a ladybird and Ely Cathedral

Yesterday it was a very busy day as I was going to watch the ordination of some friends at Ely Cathedral.  Before the event it was the usual dog walking and the butterflies were everywhere but they were on flitting all over the place.  After endless chases and disappointments I finally caught up with this one.  The detail on the wings were amazing so glad I managed to capture them in the photograph.

A Painted Lady
Other things spied was this ladybird on a seed head
 a wonderful snail shell  
Later I was off to Ely Cathedral to attend an Ordination Service, it was a grand event and the Ely Cathedral Choir were magnificent and the whole service was lovely.

All in all a very busy day and a memorable one too!
