As I was taking photos of some tawny skippers on my walk today, I started wondering about what they thought about us humans. Specifically about us humans with cameras.
Here I was this large looming figure with a large back thing sticking out of my head leaning in towards them very slowly. I would be creeped out by that if I was them.
It’s no wonder they look all judgy at me sometimes.
This one sat on that bud and stared down at me as I took a few photographs. I’m probably overthinking it but I swear there was attitude there.
On the way home I spotted this Cabbage White butterfly. Now, these butterflies are pretty skittish which is typical of anything I try to photograph. So why are the Tawny Skippers so much friendlier? Or are they just tolerating us?
