Lens-Artist Challenge #195: Colourful Expressions

Today we enjoyed a beautiful walk in Brackloon woods near Westport, Co Mayo. The wood is a Special Area Conservation due to the presence of old oak woodland. It was full of the colours of spring. The woodland floor covered in flowers. Mossy greens , the pink stems of Herb Robert, yellow Lesser Celandine and white Wood Sorrel.

Here the Wood Sorrel in more detail, and below that the Celandine.

Also the delicate white of Greater Stitchwort.

Among the flower butterflies added further colour and beauty. First the aptly named Peacock and below the Holly Blue butterfly, tiny but like a little bit of sky fliting about.

It does the soul good to immerse oneself in nature for a little while.

Thank you to Anne at Slow Shutter Speed for this week’s Lens Artist Photo Challenge.

    As ever Karina, these are true wonders to see. I am glad you got down for the small flowers and woodland floor. Butterflies are so good. I had a great day in the Brackloon Woods thank you ❤
