It’s been a great weekend, weather wise, and down on the farm the butterfiles have been out in force. The Painted Lady and Whites were more ‘flitty’ and took a good while to gain anything decent from. That’s not always the case but today they were not for staying on any food plant for more than a second or two.
Once again nature in all it’s glory, I do find also that moths are great subjects and many more of them, did you use a macro lens?.
There’s actually a mix of lenses here Trevor. Image 9 is a Comma butterfly and was actually taken with the 300mm lens, with no additional attachments – a bit like bird photography with regard to the distance I was away from the butterfly. The rest are taken with either an AF-Micro Nikkor 105mm 1:2.8 or on the Canon G10 set to Macro. No’s 5,7,8,10 were all taken with the Canon and the rest with the Nikon.
Looking forward to catching up at Flat Holm.
