Something a bit different from my usual wildlife images. Whilst out in the garden I saw this particular individual repeatedly landing on this statue after nectaring or chasing other butterflies. On my first observation (without the camera) the butterfly had landed directly in the crease of the statues arm and it looked as if both were looking at each other. On getting my camera it never landed there again! Usually how it goes… but I’m pleased with this image.
