Just popped my head out the door this morning to be confronted with this on the wall. So I ran back in for the camera and clicked off a few “rounds”. Quite laid back, allowed me close enough so that this was full frame with Sigma 105mm.
Call me boring, but I prefer my butterflies the right way up. But beggars can’t be choosers. 😀

Peacock - Inachis io

Not expecting much of anything else today as we spent most of the day in the car to Kepno and back.

It was sunny and there was an opportunity to get the camera out this afternoon, so I did. A Peacock butterfly met me at the door. I followed it round a bit and then found a comma, which I observed feeding. After that I found a bee and a mosquito in the veranda. So here they are. As is my custom, all images can be clicked for a higher resolution version.

Next was the comma

Then the comma feeding in a tree. Check out that long proboscis…

Next up Mr mosquito…


And last up a bee…


Well I enjoyed shooting them. This is the pick of about 100 shots. Hope you like ’em. 😀
