Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #231 – Favourite Images of 2022
John asks us to choose our Favourite Images of 2022. Some I have divided them into a couple of categories. Firstly (and probably not surprisingly) pollinators.
And then some wildflowers……………………
And finally some places.
Many thanks to John for getting us off to a good start for this year’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
Happy New Year

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.
