Addiction does that apparently.
She was 33 years old.
Time, ultimately, is very short, and sadly for some it is even shorter than that.
Thus I was determined to be up at dawn to be walking and photographing. However, my body knows when I'm pushing it too hard and mercifully knocked me out until 9. Then I did my walking, and later running, and might even have found a small blue butterfly for you, a rather uncommon species in a year when butterflies haven't been very numerous full stop.
It would be nice if I could get up at 9 and then go and get a really good job where I might be paid for sharing my love of nature and the outdoors. Because, as I have stated, there just isn't enough time to waste a single second.
But we all do.

|Banded demoiselle by River Devon. Tricky blighters to snap|
|Common blue rolling in clover|
|This one is a bit ragged, like yesterday's|
|At a different angle|
|First meadow browns are up too now. This one was sneaky|
|Now, is this a small blue I have here?|
|It was tiny, smaller than the common blue|
|Bees like red|
|Bees like yellow|
|And bees like whatever colour this is|
|This one had a good long feed|
|Hmmmm. Viper bugloss?|
