Marbled White Butterfly (Lydney Old Refuse Dump)

The Marbled White has a bad reputation, according to Bob. When the sun is out, it starts to fly, I mean, it does not stop. Hard to get a photograph of it. And, when the sun decides to go inside, cloudy, the butterfly settles itself down, i.e. not photogenic. Hence, I took this one. Somebody will dispute it, but, I said it was "according to Bob".

  11. Wonderful image Bob. I rather like the soft, even light for detail shots such as this. You captured the beautiful essence of this difficult subject :^)

  13. According to Mary...Bob is correct, for they are very much the same characteristics of our Zebra Butterflies. You got an exceptional image, while on this side of the pond, I have not ever managed one at all. Congrats!
