photoblog image Clouded Yellow

Clouded Yellow

I was delighted to find this butterfly in the hills of Wiltshire this week. It is a migrant to this country and most years I never catch sight of one, though occasionally we are fortunate enough to have a real influx which is known as a "Clouded Yellow Year"

really liking this shot, Lisl, of ms. clouded yellow hugging the leaf blade.
Lisl: Thank you, Ayush - usually a butterfly difficult to photograph, so I was lucky

She is gorgeous, as is your image, Lisl!
Lisl: I was just 100% lucky to get this, Ray, thank you - never before have I had such an opportunity

Superbe capture, je suis fasciné par la rondeur de ses yeux.
Très joli ce papillon jaune.
Lisl: Merci bien, JMS. Ses grands yeux verts ont été surprenants

Fine that you found this butterfly - here the butterflies are now a rarity. A wonderful image!
Lisl: We have had several "bad" butterfly years, but this year they are out in abundance again, Philine. The day I found this Clouded Yellow I saw 13 other species
I love how you keep up on these splendid gifts from Mother Nature, Lisl...and that you pass them on to us.
Lisl: Thank you, Ginnie, for your ever kind appreciation

Beautiful things. I associate them with the clifftops in E Devon
Lisl: Ah yes - as they first hit land. I wonder if you have seen in them in great numbers?

And while you had the chance, you made an excellent shot of it. Strange eye, almost like a chameleon.
Lisl: Thank you, Louis - yes a really odd eye, huge in proportion to the rest of it
Great capture! I don't have much luck getting butterfly shots. It's real eye is enormous.
A fine picture of a beautiful butterfly
What a beautiful character.

It's great Lisl, I have never seen one myself.
Lovely photo of this lovely little thing! Isn't nature just astounding!
You are outdoing Ray the macro master himself, Elisabeth.
