Colour-less

The colours in this scene today were striking – black swallowtail butterfly, with iridescent blue and orange spots, perching on pink bergamot flowers, surrounded by green foliage and blue sky…

But what I wanted to highlight was all the shapes present – the delicacy of the antennae, the exquisiteness of the proboscis seeking the nectar, the grace of the wings, the elegance of the flower petals.

Black and white can totally transform an image, reducing it to one simple element – in this case, shape.
