I think of all the insects, butterflies have the best sense of humour. I can just "hear" them laughing as they mock me chasing after them with a camera, trying to catch a shot. In my case, it is exactly that - catching a shot - because as soon as I get the butterfly within in focus, as I'm about to press the button, he closes his wings or he flies away. But in the end, I think I got one or two decent shots
Your story sounds so familiar, Deryck - I am hopeless at catching a decent image of one .... but you managed beautifully ... splendid these colours and markings, and so vivid on these softly coloured leaves.
That's right. And what about my little camera! .. I have to go to the closest meter butterfly to get a good picture and at the same time so as not to have been your shadow.
Beautiful butterfly on a beautiful background!
i bet the elusive behavior is his revenge against mankind who gave him his utterly ridiculous (his thoughts, not mine!) name: "yellow pansy? yellow pansy?? you can't be serious! so there's a little yellow, black and purple on my wings – for crying out loud, does that make me A FLOWER?!?" ; ))) great capture of the ethereal little beauty, though, deryck! i'm fascinated with the leaves he's sitting on: what unusual textures! cool and primeval looking… greetings, sabine. p.s.: the only time i ever try taking pictures of butterflies is those sunshiny last days in october: the prospect of a soon-to-come cold winter gets them really stiff and slow and melancholic… i shamelessly take advantage of that – mean, in know… ; )))
