Peacock Butterfly (Inachis io)

Stodmarsh Nature Reserve, Kent

Shot taken hand-held @500mm
I haven't seen many butterflies so far this year,
maybe it hasn't been a good year for them?

other sizes: small medium large original

Where I live NW UK there's quite a few butts. Sadly bees seems in decline. That Sigma seems to be doing well at 500mm. More DOF for the butterfly would be better - close up for a 500mm mean DOF shrinks to nowt. More suited to birdies farther off. Still, a good shot.

Superb shot Nick.
