I'm in the Vosges again for a few days and as there is always a chance to photograph a butterfly like the Chamberwell Beauty I took my camera, tripod and beanbag with me. Yesterday afternoon, after a day of work, we wanted to make a walk through the forest when I noticed a butterfly nearby:
After some photos with my smartphone I went back inside for my camera and beanbag. Although this butterfly is at least 10 months old I was surprised that he had no damages. A few minutes later the sun was shining again and 'le citron' was gone.
It's very cloudy here in France and the nights are still cold but as soon as the sun comes out for more than 2 minutes, butterflies (brimstones, red admiral, orangetips) are starting flying around.
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.
