Top Butterflies – Number 1

1. Green-underside Blue – Glaucopsyche alexis




South of Paleochori, Samos, Greece


Altitude 163m


Nikon D3S/200f4micro/cpl/SB600/softbox

ISO 500 1/250 f/18 handheld


Together with Eastern Festoon and False Apollo, and Eastern Dappled White, these were my favourite new butterfly species for this year.  Fortunately this pristine example posed nicely for me while I was orchid-hunting in Greece back in April.

    • Thanks Tom! Nice to have you pop in.
      It’s also nice to carry a couple of landscape lenses in the bag when out shooting macro, since you never know what you might find.
