This is a picture I took at Dunwich National Trust nature reserve whilst we were completing a ‘Pirate treasure hunt’ with Emma. We had just completed a clue and this Peacock butterfly fluttered by and sat on the ground in front of me. Fortunately I had my Vivitar series one 70 – 210mm macro zoom fitted to the Nex 6 and I was able to fire off a couple of shots before he(she?) fluttered away.
Although this picture isn’t in the ideal pose for a butterfly (wings extended) I quite like the way he is caught in the in-focus area.
