Butterflies, Moths and Assorted Insects...

Today we had a visitor thumb a free ride on one of the logs from the shed.

seemed very dopey so rather than leave it on the back of the sofa where the kids could hurt it, encouraged it onto a pice of paper and transferred it to one of our reading lamps, it seemed to like the heat from the bulb as it crawled down towards the heat and opened it's wings to reveal it's a Peacock Butterfly. A touch awkward to photograph as the lamp kept getting in the way.

Anyway, 6D + 100f2.0 @ f16, heavily cropped.
