Butterfly Images -- Possibly Pale Grass Blue

Zizeeria maha, GIF, butterfly, garden

Small as a Fingernail

 

 

These photos were taken over the past two days, right behind my office.

Some were shot using a 300MM lens and, others with a 50MM, when I could get close enough.

It's a fast moving critter with blue wings.

When it lands on something, the wings close up and, you won't see any blue.

A Pale Grass Blue  (Zizeeria maha) can be found throughout Asia.

Some, were brought to Okinawa from Fukushima for observation.

The scientists, fed them contaminated (radioactive) food for their studies.

Now, don't panic when I tell you this but, nuclear stuff deforms the poor things.

Not to worry, I think all the contaminated freaks, were locked up in a labratory.

If I ever see one with three antenna, I'll only use the 300MM lens from now on !
