I am a towny, that is a fact. I was born in the countryside but moved to the capital city at the grand old age of 28 days. Never had much dealings with Nature for most of my life, although I always found Nature beautiful, and loved it. It was not until I moved to the UK that I started going for walks with my British husband which in the good british tradition, knows almost everything there is to know about the natural things we come across. Eventually I started taking photographs of everything common and uncommon and try to identify it with his help. And then I try to paint it!
And here it is – a partly eaten Meadow Brown butterfly. A fortunate soul with a bad experience which lived to tell the tale, and which I thought deserved to be imortalised for its eventful life and for helping me in my battle to improve my watercolour skills.
