I’ve missed a few of my favourite challenges recently, including Paula’s Black and White Sunday, but I can’t resist texture, so I’m squeezing a few minutes to share this photo.
Plants aren’t something I’d usually pick for black and white and a butterfly, never before, but I think it works, do you?

Great set of textures, Gilly!
Absolutely works. No distraction of colour, just pure texture. May your day be full of delights.
Usually it is the colour of the butterfly that you notice hidden among the plants, in this case you have to seek it out. I think it works beautifully and I’d really like to crop the area surrounding the butterfly as there are some lovely textures going on there.
Everything Jude says! Love this shot – wonderful.
Beautifully done, Gilly! The butterfly is a cool capture! 🙂
Jude is so right! (though I hate to admit it 🙂 ) Slow getting here because I spent last night doing battle with a new phone. Silly thing kept talking to me!:(
Are you sure it was the phone talking to you?!
Just remembered I need to put your number in the Contacts. Lost all mine. Don’t ask! 😦
oh no – is your number still the same? If so i’ll text you xx
Yes, it is! I’ve put what I think is Robert’s number in my Contacts but not sure. 🙂
Hee hee . . .well a text from me should have just arrived 🙂
Thank you 🙂 🙂 Have a happy day! I’m off to see Paddington in Fenwick’s windows in Newcastle.
oh what fun . Hope you are taking him Marmalade sandwiches x
He’ll have to have healthy Marmite for a change 🙂
I would love to see this in colour as well.
There’s just something about black and white that causes us to see things that we seemingly couldn’t quite see in the color version.
Oh it works great, Gilly. So many different textures in this image. Thank you for finding time to participate. Much appreciated!
as a new photographer playing with b&w can be difficult but I️ love how you took away the distractions of color and made it all about texture and smaller details. Love it!!!
Thank you Dreamed Up – love your name!
