Butterflies and Buddleia (2)

Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock feature in the second piece recording the butterflies in my garden last Saturday. If you would like to share details of a favourite butterfly habitat in Northumberland, and what might be seen there, I would very much like to hear from you.

Peacock (Inachis io)

Beautiful photos Emma. The Peacock with its edging around the wings almost looks 3D.

Cracking pictures Emma. That Peacock is a stunner, really rich colours and perfect wings.

Your buddleia is producing far more intersting species than mine.
Lovely pics Emma. FAB

The second photo is by far the best I have seen of a Peacock.

Your photographs are stunning. They have a very fascinating brightness to them. I am still coming to terms with my Nikon D80 and its exposure foibles. I will never achieve your results, but they are a good target to aim for.
