I saw a butterfly today . . .
And, not exactly winter cheer but certainly some brightness and colour, I took some photos of a fallen tree, dead for a couple of years and felled by a gust of wind too strong for its withered rootball.
Wonderful textures (and I do love texture!) and amazing to see, up close, the life within and upon the tree.
I'd have taken a photo of the butterfly but, in December, I really wasn't expecting to see one!
