Lesser Grass Blue by Siew Bee Lim

It was a fine day, and I was roaming in a small park looking for butterfly to photograph. I saw a small lesser grass blue flying about the grassy area, which was half the size of common butterflies. Soon a big lesser grass blue emerged; it looked like parent of the small butterfly. This is a moment of the big lesser grass blue (Zizina otis lampa).

Born in 1965 in Singapore, photography was one of the old hobbies of Siew Bee Lim. Now she would like to learn it formally via Light & Composition platform as she believes it’s not too late. Since primary school she is not good in drawing; she doesn’t have artistic hand that some of her classmates have. Nonetheless, she likes reading since young, and would try to appreciate Chinese paintings. Few years after she started working as a Programmer, she took up photography as a hobby. She attended a short course which included a session in the darkroom. In those days, good photographs were dependent on good darkroom skills. It was unlikely that she spent much time in the darkroom. Hence the hobby didn’t last long then. She believes that the present learning experience has a longer way to go.
