Pearl Crescent/ Macro Monday

Pearl Crescent butterfly resting on a leaf

Last week the forest was alive with butterflies. I wish I'd had my longer zoom lens with me but I walk in the forest with my lighter lens so the photo is not quite as clear as I would like. The good news is that you can at least see what a pearl crescent looks like.

To see more macro shots visit  MACRO MONDAY at Lisa's Chaos.

Very beautiful shot! How do you shot a butterfly without them flying away from you? I tried taking photo with butterflies or dragonflies but they are so quick a little movement or sound they are gone. ^_^

We both have butterflys. I understand the problem of lenses, even with two cameras I often want a different lens.

great wingpattern on this butterfly. :) Nice to see.



I am trying to start a meme, or meetingplace, for our small, winged friends. Maybe you would like to check it out? Next one is on Thursday evening. I´d like it to be international.

So soft and delicate. I hear what you mean about the long lens. I really thought that's what I wanted to do with photography. Now I'm about ready to go with a more powerful point-and-shoot because after being out about an hour with a camera and two lenses my neck, back and everything else is just killing me!

He's a real stunner, isn't he? I love how so many of these orangey-brown butterflies look so much the same on first sight, but they all have their own individual beauty.
