  • Red Kite + Butterflies

    Walking towards the railway station I noticed a red kite on the ground and quickly raised my camera
    and managed a couple of pix from a distance as it raised itself skywards.





    Also managed a few butterflies today in cloudy conditions and below is a Marbled White and a Ringlet.



    E-M1X + 40-150 coupled with MC14 - A.mode - f5.6 - ev -0.3 etc

    .
    Just like that - gone in a flash! Now in use.

          Well done for being prepared for that chance encounter with the kite. Two lovely butterflies, the marbled white is spectacular.

              Nicely captured Barr1e. It seems strange to see Red Kites in that setting as it is still a red letter day if I spot one near me. I never see Marbled Whites here either.

                Thanks for all the likes and comments. I think part of our scenes are a joint effort as Anne and I tend to 'spot' for one another.
