Painted Lady

As promised in my recent post, here is the images of the Painted Lady butterfly that I shot when I found the Clouded Yellow. 
(see previous post)


  1. You're just rubbing it in now!......

  2. Hi Roy!! Lovely series of pictures.. Happy weekend..

  3. Great shots...I've only ever seen clouded yellows flying past me about a hundred miles per hour.


  4. Hello. Your creative sense is graceful.
    The best compliment.

    Greetings from Japan. ruma

  5. Beautiful all these pictures of the beautiful thistle butterfly.
    Beautiful crisp, bright and fantastic color !!

  6. Hi Roy,
    You had a ball with this butterfly!
    Gorgeous photos!
    Some years they are plentiful and others you are lucky when you see one, as they are a migratory species.
    I do hope the bee-eaters will settle well in your area but it is a sign that the climate is changing...
    Kind regards :)

  7. Hi Roy

    I am sure you have mentioned this a number of times but can you briefly explain your photo set up for the beautiful butterfly photos you post. I would like to try getting some better shots next year at the cabin.


    1. Hi Guy, most of my butterfly shots are taken with an Olympus E-M1 camera and Olympus 40-150 f2.8 Pro lens. (thats 80-300 mm in DSLR 35mm terms) I also fit an Olympus 1.4 converter on occasions to the lens (making that 56-420mm in DSLR 35mm terms.)
      I sometimes use my Oly 300mm f4 (600mm) lens or the Oly 12-40 f2.8 Pro (24-80mm).
      If you are considering Olympus as a set up. Its much lighter to carry around. In respect of Olympus E-M1 there is a Mk 2 out now which is out of this World, but more costly. The E-M1 is still on sale and also the E-M5 Mk 2 camera would do the same job as a E-M1 does. All Olympus kit is water and frost resistant. If you check out my Flickr site it denotes against each photo what camera I used. See top right column of my blog for link.
