On a couple of afternoons this week I have been walking through the Hightown Dunes and Meadows. I was searching for the Female Common Blue Butterfly. Last week I had seen several males but only one female and had been unable to get within a few feet of it. This week I had more success.
I have decided that the greatest skill required when taking close up nature photography has nothing to do with the type of camera etc. What you need is lots of patience.
Here are my images.
The female Common Blue Butterfly.
By contrast the wings of the male are blue with a black brown border.
I wonder what I will find next week?
