A taste of Thistle

A taste of Thistle

A multi-hued Painted Lady butterfly laps nectar from a Thistle, delicately balancing upon the plant’s neon-purple flower head whilst probing with its flexible proboscis.

*Shot on an Olympus E-P5 16mp m4/3 digital camera using a 4/3 Olympus 70-300mm f/4-5.6 ED Zuiko lens via m4/3 adaptor with camera settings at ISO-200, aperture at f/7.1, spot metering mode and an exposure time of 1/640 seconds*
