Schmetterling, farfalla, mariposa, papillon, butterfly, … It’s interesting, in different languages some things have completely different names, just as if these languages did not have common roots. Butterflies are one of them.
The Nikon 85/1.8 is not exactly a macro lens and these images are cropped, but at least it is sharp and focuses precisely. I saw the two butterflies this afternoon in a forest, on my way to the lake. It took me 40 images and some patience to come up with these.
The Song of the Day is the Johnny Mercer standard “Too Marvelous for Words“, this time sung, yes, sung indeed, by Oscar Peterson on his 1952 album “Romance (The Vocal Styling of Oscar Peterson)“. Very recommendable, sometimes hard to get, at the moment a tad expensive, even if you get it used. Of course there’s no video of Oscar singing, but I can recommend Ella instead 🙂
