Common Bluebottle 2 by Cypselurus Common Bluebottle 2 by Cypselurus
My second shot of the Common Bluebottle. One of the two species of butterfly I managed to get passable shots of. The other I will soon be uploading. I also had one or two shots of a Chinese Swallowtail, but the angle and quality was bad, so I deleted.
Other insects in the area included Hoverflies, Bluebottle and Greenbottle Blowflies, various moths, some bees, small wasps, and tiny beetles and the like hiding in the flowers themselves.

I'm sure there are some.. :D There aren't all that many where I am either, most of the butterflies here are Hairstreaks or Cabbage Whites..

Thanks :D

Another amazing shot! I love how the butterfly is centered in this. It makes for a better view of him (or her) feeding on the flower. The detail of the body and face is incredible, lots of stuff is visible that people wouldn't be able to see even in person. This is kind of fat butterfly, making it even cuter. The dark red spots are very visible in this, making it seem that much more ornate. Lovely.

You're welcome. It seems to me your camera hasn't failed you at all.

Yep. Makes it harder to fly.

Heh, you're welcome.

Out here, it's hard to tell if they have trouble flying because they're fat or because the wind is blowing too hard for them.

Latter, probably. Nature wouldn't design something too obese to fly and pollinate pollen...

True. Nature's good about that.

I do wonder what Nature was thinking when the Duck-Billed Platypus was designed, though.

Probably thinking something along the lines of "I made this thing out of spare parts on the workshop floor but it can cripple you with sharp poisonous claws while you're laughing your head off about it" XD

Yeah, they're poisonous :D Did I tell you that..?
