Life in Colour

Another  bonus brown

The Brown argus is a small butterfly that is on the wing throughout the summer, between May and September. Adults feed on Common Rock-rose, which is also the caterpillars’ foodplant, together with various species like Crane’s-bills.

The Brown argus has bronzy-brown upperwings with an orange band of spots across the edge of each wing. It is very similar to the female Common Blue, but tends to be smaller, with no hint of blue in the wings.

This month we are looking at Brown. The colour of Mother Earth.

They call Dungeness the desert of England, though experts observe that, lacking both the dearth of water and the extreme differential in night and day temperatures, it fulfils none of the desert criteria.

It is certainly a uniquely beautiful site where you can capture some intriguing photographs with its lighthouses, abandoned fishing boats, wooden cabins and thriving wildlife.What browns can you find in your world?

A bonus brown this week as I spotted this on my Sunday walk.

On returning home and reading through the posts in my Reader I realised that these two photos were also perfect for another challenge, though these were not taken using my macro lens, but my phone camera.

There is something inherently beautiful about a skeleton leaf
or in this case, petal.
