Thank You!Great shots but it's kind of standard for you...
Typical shutter speed has been 1/4000 but that's not fast enough.Thanks for that info. Did you try, if something less works?
I can't do it for my own, because we had and have a lot of rain (thankfully!) the last days and this year I saw a hummingbird moth just once.
Thanks for the reply!Typical shutter speed has been 1/4000 but that's not fast enough.
I have seen them twice this year; first time in four years.
Should be "... for her sisters!" Except if this is the queen, which I don't think.Hornet with some sweets (aka a bee) for her kids.

I have planted a cutting from a local wild plant. Here's a Clouded Yellow from Mallorca.Best way to get one:
Search for or plant a butterfly-bush (buddleja davidii), and when it is in bloom, sit down and wait
As soon as temperatures are above 10 °C they'll fly from morning 'til night.
Thanks for that analysis, but the eye is not in focus.The focus is right on the eye, that's perfect, but with a very shallow DOF, it's difficult to get more details.
It's Zizina otis. Common, non native.I am always interested in Lycaenidae. I suppose this one is from that family.
Here in Germany, some of them are quite rare or at least threatened.
Yours seems to be a quite young specimen, as the wing fringes look quite new.
I recognized it and was thinking about that, too. I did minimal processing with DPP.Maximilan, I was looking at your crop, do you know what can cause this thin white outline?
