January has started rather dull if I may say so.
Meaning the weather ofcourse.
There is no ice, no snow, no cold.
Instead, it's dark, relatively warm, windy and rainy.
The Netherlands suffer from high water and even possible breakthroughs of dikes.
I long for sun, flowers and insects.
That's why I posted this butterfly, it's from an earlier trip last year to Viroinval, Belgium.
Normally I don't often use my flash, but this time I did.
I was pleasantly surprised by the intense colors of the orange wings and the blue eyes.
