Red Kite + Butterflies

Walking towards the railway station I noticed a red kite on the ground and quickly raised my camera
and managed a couple of pix from a distance as it raised itself skywards.





Also managed a few butterflies today in cloudy conditions and below is a Marbled White and a Ringlet.



E-M1X + 40-150 coupled with MC14 - A.mode - f5.6 - ev -0.3 etc

Super set Barr1e, the number two of the kite is spot on. Also the Marbled white and Ringlet show how good the combination of camera and you are...….

Re: Red Kite + Butterflies

Well done for being prepared for that chance encounter with the kite. Two lovely butterflies, the marbled white is spectacular.

Nicely captured Barr1e. It seems strange to see Red Kites in that setting as it is still a red letter day if I spot one near me. I never see Marbled Whites here either.

Re: Red Kite + Butterflies

Thanks for all the likes and comments. I think part of our scenes are a joint effort as Anne and I tend to 'spot' for one another.

They’re slowly spreading in your direction, they’ve become a little more common around Cambridge recently!

Like magpies they seem to be spreading East - in the ‘80s we didn’t ever see magpies now they’re a common sight!
