Enjoying A Flutter

Yesterday Jena and I decided to see the butterfly collection at RHS Wisley. The freezing cold outside was a stark contrast to the necessary humidity inside the glasshouse where we enjoyed a multitude of butterflies fluttering around us.The exhibit was extremely popular and people of a full spectrum of ages were there. For reasons passing understanding, I was slightly comatose yesterday, but I still managed to eke out a few shots. I used mainly my Nikkor 18-200mm attached to my Nikon D40. I hope these images demonstrate that what can be achieved with a consumer zoom lens and a 7 year old DSLR. For sure, some had macro lenses, and there was a time when I owned a very good macro lens myself, but I think these images capture the butterflies in their full body glory and colours.I have also included a shot of Wisley House and a few samples of the many plant varieties on display.The butterfly collection is on display until February 24th, so I would get down there as soon as you can to enjoy it.
