Rusty grill

Sometimes, even when pulling apart old and unused yard appliances you come across something that takes your eye from a photographic perspective. That was how I felt when I saw the sunlight reflecting vivid oranges and blues in this old BBQ grill.

The grill itself isn’t a thing of beauty, but the colours of rust have always appealed to me. Photograph taken on my Huawei Mate 10.

Unknown garden flower

This was the result of some quick macro photography experimentation today. No tripod and an unfortunate amount of wind. Still, this detail isn’t too bad. Photograph taken on my Huawei P30 Pro (no filters).

I am unsure what the flower is. Possibly a daisy.

Buildings reflected

Sometimes an interesting shot is right above you. This photograph was taken looking up between buildings with a beautiful winter sky in the background. The colour of the main building works perfectly against the blue sky backdrop.

Static butterfly

Yesterday the butterflies were plentiful and active. Today there are fewer butterflies and they’re less active. This allowed for a closer shot than yesterday’s photographs. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Garden flower

I do not know what type of bush grows this flower, but it is growing in my yard. I don’t recall planting it, so it may be a ‘weed’ or something bird brought in. Still, it’s not unattractive when it flowers. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Blue butterfly

The third decent photograph I captured today in my back yard—thank you social distancing and isolation?!—while the butterflies enjoyed the flowers and sunlight. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Orange butterfly

The second of three decent photographs captured today in my own backyard. Not being a butterfly/moth expert, I’m currently assuming this is a butterfly. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.

Trio of butterflies

It’s been a while since I pulled the camera out of the bag and today there were dozens of butterflies in the back yard. It was a beautiful sight to see while being confined to my own yard like most of the world currently. Photograph taken on Nikon D60.
