On this bright, sunny day, this rather damaged holly blue butterfly was hanging around the ceanothus in our back garden for ages. I took loads of photo, but my little compact camera kept focussing on the wrong thing. I eventually coaxed it into focussing on the actual butterfly for this shot, although the direct sunlight has washed out the blue into a bright silver. More importantly though, I have now worked out how to get the camera to focus on whatever I’m pointing at, rather than something away on the side.
