The Painted Lady

Plutselig fikk vi et nytt innslag i hagen: En tistle-sommerfugl! Jo, den forekommer over størstedelen av landet, men – den pleier ikke hjemsøke vår hage. Muligens fordi vi ikke har særlig mange tistler der 🙂 . men – det ser jo ut som den primært går etter fargen?
I alle fall var den veldig samarbeidsvillig og slapp meg helt inn på 10 cm avstand, men
å sitte stille foran fotografen – det hadde hun ikke tid til! Likevel fikk jeg noen tilnærmet brukbare bilder samtidig som jeg fikk anledning til å prøve meg på macrobilder med mobil-camera. Det ble en litt uventet utfordring fordi det er mye vanskeligere å holde en lett mobiltelefon like rolig som et litt tyngre camera, men her er i alle fall resultatet!
Suddenly we observed a new vistor to our garden: A painted lady! (Well, now – it’s a butterfly!) It’s supposed to thrive over most of our country, however, it’s kind of new to our garden, – perhaps we don’t have many of its favourites here? But it seems it may be fooled to go for the colors?
At any rate it seemed very co-operative and let me shoot my pictures from a range of only 4 inches! (For which I’m grateful! 🙂  ) But remind posed for phothraphy? No way!
I still think I got some pictures that I may share? At the same time I got an opportunity to test my ability to hold a light mobile camera absolutely still shooting macro’s (which was far more difficult than holding a regular camera!)
Here – at least – is my result!
Compliments of SRB)
Please return me to  INDEX  for a new picture/destination.

      Hi, there, Irina! Thank you, and – where have you been keeping yourself? Long time – no see! 🙂

        Hi Svein! I’ve been having lots of fun on Instagram! 🙂

        • Seenorway says:

          That’s the problem! I think I told you that spreading to thin over a large area mey result in loosing both!? Personally I don’t trust Facebook nor Instagram any more. There has been too many security breaches!

          • irinadim says:

            Yes, I know. You warned me before about Facebook, but it’s such a convenient way to stay in touch with your friends and relatives all over the world.

            • Seenorway says:

              Yes, I know, and the price paid is that your personal information get sold to people with money enough to pay for it, but – hopefully- with the introduction of GDPR it will be too expensive even for organizations like Facebook to trade personal informations?
              The fines may amount to billions of dollars!!!

              I don’t think anyone would be interested in buying personal data about small fry like me. 🙂

              As an individual, probably not, The problem here is that such lists of adressees are sold in bulk and
              treated collectively. What happens to others, will probably happen to you as well,
              Some sell on such lists for advertising purposes, and others will/might sen Even buying ample protectiond you a ransom virus.
              They do this collectively with no time for individual check outs. So even if you havce no money for grabs, the contence on your
              machine is lost to you!
              Even buying ample virus protection is today no guarantee that you won’t be hit. Therefore your best protection is to stay away from certain places on the net! Especially those where we know the protection is insufficient or data even sold!

              That’s really scary!

    Amazing shots! How did you manage to get such awesome close-ups? Only 4 inches away – wow!

    • Seenorway says:

      Well, it’s not too hard, really! You sit down next to the flowers untill insects accept you as a normal element in the garden. Prepare the camera for the shot you’re about to take.
      Then there is a matter of a ‘waiting game’, only remember to move slowly and not too high avoiding blocking out the sun and you may have several chances!
      I’ve had butterflies landing on my arms or my head, but – that will pose problem as far as pictures go! 🙂
