Blame the starlings for this post,firstly the starlings have deserted the garden and my project with them has been put on hold,secondly I visited Blackpool to photograph the starlings going to roost on the North Pier the starlings never appeared and the sun disappeared behind the grey cloud so no sunset shots either.I decided to stay and photograph the Blackpool Illuminations,this project was totally alien to me experimenting with a wide angle lens,different F stops and shutter speeds I thoroughly enjoyed myself even if alot of the images were rubbish.I posted a few of my better efforts below.

I thought I would post a few images of local butterflies to brighten up a dull wet and windy October day.The first two images are of a small copper,No 3 is an orange tip,4&5 are comma butterflies while 6 is a peacock,7 is a small tortoiseshell while the last but not least is a speckled wood.I hope the photographs brighten up your day.

I`ve recently bought a s/h canon flash gun and have been practising with it in the garden trying to capture images of starlings in flight.The starlings are very unpredictable visiting the garden and the weather has been very unpredictable as well.I`ve not had the two together yet but I will keep trying and hopefully everthing will come together (watch this space) I`ve posted my efforts below in very dull grey sky conditions.
