Local butterflies and other goodies (continued)

On my way back to the car through the wood I also stopped occasionally to take a few shots of damselflies.  In the second and third shots I forgot to turn the flash gun on!  This means that each of these shots is completely underexposed by a full stop, that had to be pulled back in ACR.  Did a pretty good job without introducing too much noise (something the D800E is thankfully particularly noted for).  None of these is more than 2 inches in length.

Hopefully the coming weeks will produce more opportunities; I’m particularly looking forward to catching up with the local Purple Emperors once again…
