Hi Jim -

I was in the meadow yesterday and watched an explosion of Ringlet Butterflies emerging, I was so engaged I forgot to photograph/video the scene.

I hope all is well.

Kindest

Nice series Brad, I need to follow your lead and get out more. I really like the last as a behavior shot.

Male and Female of the Species

Eastern Pondhawks.  Male and female respectively.  Shot with 50-200, EC14 and tripod.  The last image is another of the damselfly (Aroura?) feeding which was shot with 50-200, 500D close up lens and tripod.

If you can't make sense, go make nonsense. It's better than no sense at all.

Dragon flies & damsel

David, Great captures, I rarely see a female pond hawk, I have not seen one this year, only the males,  the aurora damsel with insect in mouth is a great catch

Re: Marbled White Butterfly

Understand the name, once I saw the pattern on the wings, great catch, we do not have that species in the US, at least it is not in any book that I have

Re: Marbled White Butterfly

very nice Barr1e. That was the biggest issue with going to your neck of the woods in the winter time. I never got to shoot any bugs over there.

Re: Male and Female of the Species

I'm going to have to start saving the images and IDs posted in here. Better than any book I have.

Very nice series.

Thanks for sharing

From my yard today

I took the 35mm/ EC 20 combo out to the yard today. It's basically a 2-1 prime the way I use it so I was hunting small.

The hoverflies I see in the mountains are huge compared to the tiny ones we have here.

I thought this jumper was a speck of fly stuff until it moved.

All taken with the E 5, 35mm, EC 20, foam ring flash.

Thanks for looking
