[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Pilansberg National Park is situated in the North West Province of South Africa. The park is approx. 55,000 Hectare in size and is known for the presence of the big five. A fact that a lot of people miss is that we have an abundance of other wild live and diverse vegetation. Due to the good rains that we had, a lot of butterflies and other insects are flying about. I managed to shoot this one with its wings open. Latin Name : Junonia archesia; wing span : 48 - 56 mm; Bright Orange or red wing bands parrallel with the outer wing margins forking at fore wing tip. Habitat : Rocky grassy slopes and hill tops. Common in gardens.

Hallo Andre
Holland calling ^!^
Een kompliment voor deze mooie close-up.
'Baie goed gedoen' mooi scherp en goed van kleur
Groet uit Den Haag (zelde tijd, hier nu 10 voor 10 in de morgen )

Thanks for sharing something that not many people get to see. A bit unfortunate that the right side of the photo loses detail with the unfocus.

Hoi Andre
Weer een mooie foto en een bijna makro shot.
Een reaktie op wat mijn voorganger schrijft hier, bijna altijd in close ups-macro's is het centrum scherp en de randen wat vaag, dus goed gedaan

Hi Andre,

A good shot, the detail is good and the colours are vivid.


Amazing picture!!! I just bought myself a Powershot S2, but that sharp macro-pictures I'm not able to make. You are using an extra lens, isn't it, or am I just doing somethin wrong?
