About Mother Nature

I love to photograph nature, city landscapes and other various objects, as I aim to jump at the opportunity of taking the best photos that I want you to see while the chances are there, and also while the opportunities are still there too. It’s hard to photograph insects considering the breeds of insects that are rare to find nowadays, but I aim to make sure that I can get the best photos of anything nature-based where possible, including getting photos of city landscapes and anything else that is not nature-based.

As I aim to make sure that every moment is treasurable and valuable, I aim to make Mother Nature a local pin-point for life, and also another local point for other things as well, as this will help me to expand my interests to other things, including expanding my interests above and beyond to yours.

Below are some of the photographs that I took in the Summer of 2013 of the Speckled-Wood Butterfly resting on a plant, including some photos of the White Cabbage Butterfly, including what appears to be a rare breed of ladybird. The rare breed of ladybird can be seen by zooming in on the photo.

I aim to get the best out of my DSLR (Nikon D3300), as I aim to get the best quality photos where possible, whether it’s nature-based or not. Even if I have the 18-55 mm lens for my Nikon D3300 DSLR, this is useful for me as I can photograph and zoom in and get the best photos that I aim to produced, whether they are nature-based or not.

I always like to make sure that I can write and publish articles on a daily basis, so that for each week or each day, you are kept up to speed on the fresh, new content that I write and publish on Mother Nature.from different focal points.

I dabble I actually miss shooting with my old minolta slr and developing black and white in a dark room, digital takes out all the romance for me – Then again I love the quality and ease, I’m an old(er) lady thats caught in-between then and now!

    1. Thank you so much Gin, I really appreciated it. I mainly used to use my camera, before the battery started playing up, but for the moment, I use my iPod touch to take photos that I know will possibly be interesting :-).

  6. Walking along the Air Force base fence, northward, a steady stream of small butterflies flew by me. Funny, they could easily fly through or over the chain link fence. Thousands of them, at least a mile? Then I reached a small gate open to a dirt road in the desert. Half of the butterflies turned off into the wasteland of the Air force base, the rest continue following the fence to another part of the huge base. No likes, no follows please, only sincere comments.
