Red Admiral Butterfly, Nunnery Lane, Darlington.England by 

This particular butterfly was a bit of poser, and no matter how many times he was disturbed, he came right back. A spectacular summer visitor to the UK, I’m always happy to see them.

Canon 550D EFS 55-250mm

My vision is provided by mother nature in all her modes.

Whatever precautions you take so the photograph will look like this or that, there comes a moment when the photograph surprises you. It is the other’s gaze that wins out and decides.

Book Recommendation: Photographic Composition, A Visual Guide: Richard D Zakia and David A. Page…..very useful as it has much to do with the mental processes, with which we use to see and visualise before the shutter is pressed.

  • Cheers, Derek, Remember when we had sunny days ? lol. I haven’t seen one Butterfly this year so far. Ahh, well , camera was unrepairable. Looking at options , probably I’ll get a 60D body.

    Yeh…sunshine?? An almost abstract concept now lol. Well, I really like my 60D. Still learning but it seems a solid piece of kit.

  • lol….sunshine, a memory. Just had a ton of rain dumped on me :( That’s good to know, I believe there will be 70D out in Sept, so perhaps 60D prices will fall a little more :) – Ian Alex Blease
