A visual pick-me-up


It’s still January. It’s still fairly dark and gloomy in the morning. Each day it’s getting lighter, little by little. But sometimes a bit of help is needed, so here’s my visual pick-me-up.

I photographed this slightly scruffy Blue Morpho butterfly in Costa Rica last year. Its ragged wings suggest it had been around for a while and was not newly-hatched. It had landed on ivy, and the slighly muted greens, blues and browns are lit, not garishly but with subtle sunlight  which illuminates the glow of its blue wings.
