It’s been a good month for butterflies. That said, I haven’t seen the peacock butterfly around very often, and not for a couple of years. One turned up a few days ago so I rattled off several dozen shots, pleased with myself. The next day it returned and spent the day flittering around one particular bush. Of the many shots, this is one of the closest and clearest. A beautiful butterfly and welcome visitor.

Details: Canon EOS 1200D, manual mode, f8, 1/500 sec, ISO-400, Canon 50mm lens, 27 August 2017.
