A rescheduled ‘Photography Friday’ outing this week saw Rachel and I exploring a local nature reserve on Wednesday…

Apart from a Common Tern (Sterna hirundo) the only visible wildlife was butterflies and I spent quite a bit of time photographing them.

This Peacock butterfly (Inachis io) was captured with the aid of an 11mm extension tube placed between camera and lens, allowing the XF 55-200mm lens to focus much closer than its normal 1.1m whilst maintaining both auto-exposure and autofocus functions, it’s an accessory I find myself using more and more.
