Some butterflies. Haven't seen much butterflies around this year. C&C welcome.

Kees

1) Cinnabar Moth. I find these quite hard to shoot. The red tends to get oversaturated.

The Cinnabar seems to be on a ragwort plant, the foodplant of its caterpillars. Eggs tend to be laid on or amoung the unopened flower buds.

Thanks all,

@Harold, well spotted . In dutch the plant (jacobskruiskruid) gives the name to the butterfly(st. jacobsvlinder). Same as in latin i notice (Jacobaea vulgaris vs Tyria jacobaeae). Didn't know that the eggs are laid among the unopened flower buds. I should try to spot them next time.

Kees,

Nor did I until last year. Now that I know where to look, I was able to find first instar lavae this year:

A reminder: it is a day-flying moth, not a butterfly (your slip).

Lovely captures- esp like the first 2 shots.
Flowers in the last shot are a bit blown I think

Thanks again,

@Harold, Both moths and butterflies belong to the same order of Lepidoptera, for which the common name is butterfly (not willing to admit mistakes ). But indeed it's a day-flying moth. In dutch there is even a distinction between nachtvlinder (night butterfly) and mot (moth). Moth is used for the butterflies which are considered a pest.
To make it worse. i did see those little larvea of them. But didn't take a shot of it.

@Brian, yes the flowers are blown. I think my diffuser was pointing to much downward and caused it.

Kees.
