Julie and I took a Sunday walk along the Grantham Canal, a while ago, as we had a fairly bad Saturday, to cheers ourselves up.
This turned out to be a camera day for sure.
We walked towards Nottingham way for maybe 3/4 hr to nothing happening, so we decided to call it a day, when we got to where we leave the canal to the car, Julie says lets try going the other way towards Grantham, course me being me, I was up for it.
No sooner had we gone a few feet, Julie grabbed me by the arm and said "look here what ive spotted, course me being blind as a bat I had walked straight past.
Camera in shooting action, I stepped up to this catterpillar and snap,snap,snap, - well a few more snaps and I was pleased what I had taken.
I was ready for the off, when Julis had stopped a few paces donw the path with camera in her hand, Ok I says let the snapper chap have a look, mmm I says -some sort of fly, very colourful too, so more snaps and we were ready to head back to the car.
When I noticed a Butterfly and what a job I had to capture this beautiful creature, chasing along the canal - with camera at hand.
After 10 mins or so, I had my eye on this creature and just got 1 shot before it flew away, but I was happy with the outcome.
When wa got home I started downloading while Julie made Dinner.
We were in a happy mood so we cracked open a bottle of red wine and had a pleasent eve by the tv.
A worthy and pleasent day it turned out to be.
