Painted Lady

The other week I took my 70-200mm lens out for a change. I really should do it more often. Changing lenses forces you to view the world in a different way. Rather than going after small birds I needed more amenable targets. One thing I really appreciate with this lens is being able to get much closer to your subject. I particularly liked this picture of a painted lady butterfly. I love the way the light shines through its wings. And if you're thinking the sky looks dark - that's because its actually the Thames!
