Marbled White Butterflies

The summer feels a distant memory but here are some images of a trip to Ryton Wood Meadows from back in July. This site is always good for Marbled White butterflies and so I try to manage one visit per year given the lack of nearer Marbled White sites.

As usual, I was keen to include the butterflies' habitat within the images so used a combination of my Laowa 15mm macro and Tokina 35mm macro lenses for many images.

The first is perhaps my favourite image of the session (Tokina 35mm):



I was lucky enough to find a mating pair of butterflies. This image was taken with the Laowa 15mm lens:



while this came from the Tokina 35mm. The breeze had got up by this point was was catching the butterflies' wings:



here's a more conventional shot taken with my Tamron 60mm lens:



finally, here's one taken with my Olympus O-MD E-M1 and Olympus 60mm macro:
