Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


Two butterflies, photographed during a walk today. Unfortunately I didn’t have my Raynox lens with me so these were shot with PS SX60 only.

(1) Common Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni) and a bee


(2) Small white (Pieris rapae)

  1. Lovely!! Reminded me of this quote by Robert A Heinlein; “Butterflies are self propelled flowers.”

  2. Great shots! I especially like the butterfly and bee combo! ๐Ÿ™‚

    There’s been a decline in bee and butterfly populations worldwide. We humans need to be more environmentally responsible.

  4. Nice close-ups, I must get a butterfly field guide for myself some day.Not familiar with the lenses but assume they are macro?

    • Thanks Jane! Normally I use a macro conversion lens but I didn’t have it with me yesterday so these were taken with a fixed (non-macro) lens.

  7. Wonderful capture! On the first one I was thinking for a second ‘where is the butterfly?’. It blended is so well just as a green leaf and I was seeing the bee! ๐Ÿ™‚
