|Blue Bottle Fly, Calliphora vomitoria|
And the world of Butterfly is buzzing. Or is that the world of Bee? Col got an amazing shot of a bluebottle yesterday - I had never realised before what beautiful stained glass wings they have. Every time anybody casually swats one, they are killing a living Tiffany jewel.
As the year surges forward, full of vitality, I feel very out of step. But then I am only 3 years off my sell-by date (under the "threescore years and ten" rule).
