Active weather

Alain Briot praised "active weather" in his book Mastering Photographic Composition, Creativity, and Personal Style, of which I wrote some comments. Today we had just such weather, it rained in the morning, but then the sun came out, occasionally hidden by the clouds. And there was even a little bit of fog in deep forests where some snow still remain.

Yesterday I mentioned blue anemones as a sign of spring. Today I saw and managed to capture in a photograph Gonepteryx rhamni, one of the earliest spring butterflies here in Finland. First it was warming up in the sun, but then it hid under a twig and was hard to see there. But it allowed the camera to come very close, so I got quite a good photograph of it.
