Snapshot – Bob Woodroofe

walk to the woods along

green hedged corridors

sheltered from the wind

then blown across open fields

to the refuge of the trees

deep inside the browns of

both hedge and meadow

green vein of white

dark flutter of ringlet

orange buzz of skipper

chocolate and cream

of speckled wood

marvel of marbled white

tawny flicker of fritillary

white glide of admiral

high in the trees the

silver disc of hairstreak

purple flash of emperor

the volley of camera shutters

that catches the moment
