I’m up early today heading towards the nature park the Bruuk near a city called Groesbeek. This area is known for the butterfly’s that are often seen here in this time of year. I’m hoping to see a species called Orange tip.
In the morning the butterfly’s hang on a flower to warm up. When they are warm enough eventually they fly away but until then they are perfect photographic opportunities. When I’m searching the area my attention gets distracted by the rising sun and the intense fog that is flowing into the area. I’m noticing some nice trees and I reach for the camera.
I’m making some great pictures and due to the fog and the rising sun the pictures are very mysterious and almost black and white. After half an hour I regain my search for the butterfly’s and luckily another photographer helps me. I’m stunned by the small size of the butterfly and I know for sure that I would never have found them on my own.
I’m taking a lot of nice pictures but they all lack the nice morning light in background. But this was my own mistake because I spend so much time making pictures of the fog. I actually don’t mind at all, it is not every day that I can come home with such nice landscape photographs. At least I know where the butterfly’s are and I will definitely get back for them some day.
