Botanic Gardens: Butterfly Blip
Refreshing in large
Funky eye alternative
Oxford is heaving at the moment; I went over to Christ Church Meadows, but it was so busy that I retreated to the Botanic Gardens for some breathing space. I'd decided (before arriving) that I wanted a butterfly blip; there weren't actually very many around, but I got a few photos of whites (I'm not sure if this is large or small; I suspect that it is a large white, but am not confident).
I had fun taking photos in the bright sunshine, so have uploaded too many to Flickr (right from this morning's non-biting midge).
