  1. What an absolutely exquisite photo Sue. Just what I need on a slushy Sunday after a late light at the opera.

    • Sue

      This was just such an amazing sight, the butterflies in th hot house…but I missed most shots because my lenses were steamed up, or the butterflies just darted about so quickly… At least I got one!
      How was the opera?

  2. It was one of those HD live things from the Met: “Romeo and Juliet”. My daughter came too, so that was extra nice. Magnificently sung and staged, and some fascinating glimpses behind the scenes, especially making costumes for “Rusalka”. I’d forgotten how long it takes people to die in opera

  3. Owl butterfly? Beautiful! Saw them in the rainforest – big as bats!

  4. My gaze is firmly drawn to the fake ‘eye’ on the wing, just as nature intended!
    A tricky shot, Sue, and very well captured.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. So incredible…and extraordinary!

  6. Ah, the Wisley butterflies. Always a treat, have they stopped doing this for half-term then? It was always very popular and like you I never got any brilliant shots of them. I think my best butterflies were taken over in a place in California where the atmosphere wasn’t as steamy. Sarah always manages to get some amazing photos though.

  7. Fantastic silence Sue.
    The intricate detail is fascinating

  8. Brilliantly composed – you and the butterfly.

  9. It’s exquisite Sue, great shot!
