p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Norfolk Swallowtails


UK butterfly hunters will know that the swallowtail which we get here in the UK is the largest of our native butterflies, and one of the rarest, restricted to a few sites in the Norfolk Broads; I have failed on every attempt to find them deliberately. Anyway, we were out on a family outing yesterday, No DSLR with me, no macro lens, no flash. We called in for a drink to a tea shop at the back of a church which had a bit of a flower garden, and there they were. So taken with a Sony NEX-7 and a 1960 vintage Leica 135mm f4 Elmar, except for the last one which was a Voigtlander 40mm f1.4, neither of which focus particularly closely, so these are cropped a fair bit as well. I know they aren't real "macros" in the true sense, but thought you might like to see them anyway....
