Re: Bugboys mission

Having been away it is taking a while to catch up with everything people have been seeing and doing. Sorry to hear of your illness. It is a horrible condition, even though you seem to have made the best of the recovery time. :D Many, many of your shots are worthy of :mrgreen: :mrgreen: especially th...

Re: Pauline

Pauline, Your pictures of hairstreaks are beautiful. It is lovely to see a butterfly I have only ever seen in single specimens in number and perfect condition. :D :D This is a lovely place as it helps to ease some of the negative feelings about the loss of numbers of butterflies in the UK. Clearly, ...

Re: Art Frames

Thank you Wurzel, Bugboy, Goldie M and Trevor for your kind comments. There were a few more.... :wink: The blues included the usual suspects plus a new one for me. A Green-underside Blue which I believe was egg-laying. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4284/35350023481_597a1a71c8_c.jpg Green-underside B...

Re: Art Frames

I am back from my first visit to Hungary and will share some of the delightful butterflies I was able to see and spend some time with. Over 8 days we were in two wonderful and quite different areas. These were the Aggtelek National Park (a Unesco heritage site with extraordinary caves - which we did...

Re: Trevor

INVEST IN THE FUTURE ! Today I made what I believe to be a shrewd investment. What is more I hope to get a quick return on my money, in two or three weeks time. Are you making sandwiches then? :lol: Hope you have a good time making odd smells in the woods. :roll: I will take a fly swat to keep the ...

Re: Martin Jenkins

Lovely shots and you have brought back my childhood. I have fond memories of the Isle of Wight. Saw my first ever purple hairstreak basking open winged showing purple. In those days we didn't take photos, but I wish I'd had the same camera as today...

Re: Art Frames

Thanks Bugboy, Pauline and Trevor. At the moment so little is on the wing that I would welcome any butterfly to shoot. But I will accept your challenge :D What else do I need to get beyond these Trevor - I know you are an aficionado :wink: https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8592/28268096066_7103ec7af1_c....

Re: Art Frames

My annual pilgrimage to Ivinghoe and a rather wonderful site nearby (I am driven there so I don't have an exact reference) gave me some time with Duke of Burgundies, Green Hairstreaks and Small Blues. For once the weather, sun and relatively low breeze combined with a day out and good numbers of but...

Re: Bugboys mission

Nice Dukes, I am hoping to be at Ivinghoe tomorrow for my annual pilgrimage. And then to a secret small blue hotspot (well secret to me as I can never find it on my own). I look forward to the next bit.... :D

Re: Art Frames

No I didn't shoot any video. I must admit I've not explored that function on my camera, I really should though. You should see plenty of courtship, they really are nonplussed by nosey people with cameras! I have just returned from seeing one green-veined white and one red admiral - and a drinker mo...

Re: Art Frames

Thank you Bugboy, David, Goldie, Pauline and Wurzel. You are more than kind. I had a look at your Wood Whites Pauline and think yours (especially the cute one with the dandelion) are very nice indeed and tell a great story. I think they are super butterflies and wasn't aware that they had appeared a...

Re: Art Frames

With my new found freedom, and the fact that Northamptonshire is in Monsoon season (particularly on any day when I am not expected to work) I have delved into my files to one of my local success stories. The Wood White in Salcey Forest is quite strong. Two years ago, when these were shot, there was ...
