Painted Lady

Painted Lady


Thank you to IrishKate for the gift of here UA for the "Brandywine and Yellow Jacket" image.

Note---- there will be plenty of apples for apple butter--tho NOT from this tree. These will soon fall off and the wasps will die in the first heavy frost.

Apple butter is a thick spicy jam---good on toast, biscuits, pancakes, ice cream--- I will try to get a picture of it while it simmers over the fire! ( My neighbor holds cooking re-enactments--I am always invited to come with camera--- but i refuse to do dishes in a wooden tub! might damage the camera--- LOL!

Your butterfly series has been excellent but this must be one of your best yet, Jenn: beautifully lit and the detail and colours so accurately recorded.

A painted lady, and what a wonderful canvas she has in those wings. The apple butter does sound delicious.

You have an individual style, Jenn, and that style is so attractive, love the composition, light and detail on both flower and butterfly.

Lovely - I like the proboscis in the flower. Not many Painted Ladies about this year over here.

A beautiful painted lady butterfly Jenn, the detail and colours are fab. I must agree with Brian, I've hardly seen any this year either although I did photograph one at Crickley Hill which I shall upload on here sometime in the not too distant future
