The Admiral and the Painted Lady


Red Admiral – Vanessa Atalanta – Amiralfjäril

Painted Lady - Cynthia Cardui – Tistelfjäril

I was out chasing butterflies in the park again the other day. The Admiral wasn’t very keen on having his photograph taken – he kept his distance. But his Painted Lady friend was quite willing to pose for me with wings spread.

Goodness, how did you manage that without scaring her away? This is a macro, I'm guessing? I've never seen butterflies this tame, beautiful!!!

I saw the title and thought, oh boy another reveiw on a book, i had this romantic story going in my head about that admiral andpainted lady, and what to my wondering eyes did appear? not one but two beautiful butterflies.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
