See how FZ50 and 5320pro did to the butterflies

Just visited a small butterfly garden here in my place and took some species of butterflies which I have no ideas of what they are.

Hope you like them anyway :

you see this one with 4 wings...

Great Pictures no Stunning Photos

All your photo's were made by the FZ-50. Those are great photos - I do not know butterflies.

I thought your subject line say something about a 5320pro. I do not know what that is either ie the 5320pro.

Cheers, Ray

Ray, the 5320pro is one of the Raynox's close-up lenses.

Some real beauties in this series. I don't know much about BFs but the ones with 4 wings are not butterflies or moths - they are called Skippers.

Re: See how FZ50 and 5320pro did to the butterflies

Great pictures especially the two Skippers. Number 5 looks very much like the European Silver Spotted Skipper but is presumably an antipodean relative.

Interesting that Ken thinks of Skippers as separate to Moths and Butterflies, here in Europe, Skippers are considered very much a butterfly albeit a distinct family.

That 5320 looks a vary nice piece of kit although I think they cost about 7 or 8 times the DCRs here in the UK so I don't think I'll be getting one yet.

Re: See how FZ50 and 5320pro did to the butterflies

These were very beautiful. Great that you could get so close. What is the working distance of the 5320?

Re: See how FZ50 and 5320pro did to the butterflies

Very nice set of butterfly close-ups Tony. I think Trevor is correct in that Skippers are butterfllies. Butterflies are divided into two major families, the true Butterfly and the Skipper. Skippers are distinguished from true butterflies by the antennae, which end in what looks like a curved club. The are called Skippers because of their skipping type of flight. Regardless of the ID, the images are great.

Thanks Trevor and Ken as well.

The name 'skipper' to me is the captain of the football team ?

Thanks.

The closest is 311mm if attached with the 3-diopter lens.

Excellent images tony.... I wonder what the first one is(not that I know about the others) .... never seen it before, its rear end has a simulation of a front end with wide open mouth to scare away any potential predator.... nature's miracle at work here.... thanks for sharing.

Thanks aftab.

You are correctly saying that the first one's rear is kind of cool.
When I firstly saw it, I thought I shot it at it's head :

but later, I found it's head was like this :

Re: See how FZ50 and 5320pro did to the butterflies

I think your "two-headed" butterfly may be a member of the Swallowtail family. From what I could find, this variety is found only in China. We have lots of swallowtails here in the U.S., but I have never seen anything even close to the one you posted.

Thanks. It is a very interesting name - "swallowtail".
