Ramsey - Nice. That first one is a Buckeye, very common down here, I've gotten a bunch of shots of them this year. Second one is common too, along with several other skippers. Bottom one you listed as unidentified I think is a Pearl Crescent. I see them here, but have gotten very few good shots. Tried to shoot one yesterday but it never gave me a decent angle. CEWren posted a nice shot of one on the previous page, check it and see, this might be the same butterfly, I think so anyway...

Here's another sulphur.

A smaller Sulphur about an inch tall or so.

Viceroy OOPS...just realized when I looked, this one has no stripe on wings, it's a Monarch, not Viceroy. Don't see them often, this one and about a half dozen others were hanging around a few days ago and I never realized I was shooting Monarchs not Viceroys...

Gulf Fritillary shot with my Lentar 90-230 at about 12 feet distance, full zoom. I think it was f8, seems I shot f8 all afternoon that day.

Thanks Pete, you are right, it is actually the same species that I posted earlier. You have some very striking images there, I really like the two sulphurs, the detail in the wings is great. Were they shot with the Lentar too?

large movement winding up around here, mostly monarchs, few swallowtails
lots of sulphurs like Petes(nice one). Dont think that one gets this far west, Ramseye
Id remember that one. One variety of swallowtail, and monarch 'straggler'
dont know if #3 is butterfly or moth.
Cheers,
Bill

Nice group Bill, that last one is a buckeye, a nicer photo than one I have earlier in the page.

Thanks, Ramsey. No, both were shot with my trusty old 50mm series A. Had to look them up and check the EXIF...

This one was shot with the Lentar, Variegated Fritillary about 2 weeks ago or so. Full zoom, about 12-15 feet, no editing but crop & resize.

These are older shots, just ran across them again and uploaded.

Giant Swallowtail, Makinon 135mm

Skipper, Pentax 50mm

I don't think any processing was done on either, but not positive. I've had the camera tweaked to give me what I want without processing 90% of the time for a good while. Most only get a bit of sharpening if anything, usually not even that. Not sure what skipper that is, they are tough to ID. The swallowtail never gave me a chance to shoot the upper wings.

My first chance to shoot this guy, late in the season. Rokinon 75-300 about 8 feet away.

Common Snout Butterfly. Check out the schnozola on this guy...

Paleo Pete, I'm following you on the forum

These two from Malawi. I like the way I captured the first one having a sip with its probiscus.

The second I thought was excellent camouflage.

Have a great clicking weekend.

OK so now I'll follow you...

One I've wanted to see for a long time, finally got a few shots yesterday in a parking lot of all places...

Question Mark, I was using my Rokinon 75-300 for this one.

And another Sulphur, this one landed close enough to get some nice shots. Used the Lentar 90-230 for this one. The color is almost exactly the same shade as the real thing. Several others were out, all lighter yellow than this one.

At first: wllm! Great shot! I really like it.

Here are my five butterflies shot in Brandenburg/Germany. Two of them are more or less bokeh studies.

Regards,
Christoph

PS: The moth is watching you out of the dark!

Going to try something different here, this gray hairstreak decided to not only sit still, but let me get close enough to grab a binocular lens macro shot or two. What is different, is I'm attempting to post it from my gallery instead of Flickr...1st try so bear with me...



I'm not sure how this will work....
