Peacocks and Admirals

26th August 2013
Peacock & Red Admiral butterflies in my garden yesterday…..

My understanding is that for a butterfly photograph to be "acceptable" to wildlife photographers it is necessary for ALL the butterfly to be tack sharp. I think this one is pretty close.





But to me the pose is a bit sterile. While this next one one may not pass muster to the aficionados, I think it has a bit more about it - a bit of drama.






This Red Admiral shot is my personal favourite:







These were taken on our Buddleia bush, which is in full bloom and seems to be butterfly heaven at the moment.
