Last week I was in the Vosges and enjoyed the warm & sunny weather and the large amount of butterflies. While I was eating my croissant on Friday morning, the first Camberwell Beauty passed my terrace followed by some Brimestones. Half an hour later I was unable to count the butterflies....three to four 'dancing' Large Tortoiseshells and Camberwell Beauties, dozens of Brimstones and a lot of Peacock Butterflies, Comma Butterflies, Red Admirals en Small Tortoiseshells.
On Friday I used my good old Canon. Friday evening I switched the custom settings on the Sony and on Saturday I used my new workhorse for butterflies.....and I'm impressed by the live view zoom and the sharpness!
This Large Tortoiseshell is a 20% crop of the original and still sharp!
Since August 2017 I'm the owner of Maison Bonheur, an old farmhouse in the Vosges. Because of its location in the forest/nature the possibilities for nature/peace/relaxing lovers are limitless.
