Yeah, this planet is dying -- sunset is no longer beautiful here in HK:

The "eyes" make it "look like" a wild cat!

Beautiful.

Yes, and its camouflage is a wonderful evolutional adaptation, it's one of the most beautiful butterflies living here in Poland. Smile

Yeah, the most amazing thing is that it had been sitting long enough on my mother's hand that I was able to take a few photos. Wink

I guess the butterfly, and insects in general, can "feel" the benevolence of your mum. Smile

BTW, do you know it is truly a blessing for an adult at your age to be able to keep such a close relationship with his/her parents? Perhaps I should stop being an atheist for a few seconds and wonder that you must have done something really good in your previous incarnation. Wink

Nice shots! I even recognized some birds that are common in our European areas. Smile

Thanks. Hope that I can observe some of the European counterparts. Wink

Yesterday I was so happy that I finally got some clean shots of this black-faced species, members of which had eluded "capture" for the past couple of weeks!

Nice photos. Smile I'm not an expert in ornithology but to me those birds look like representatives of the Corvidae family. Some species of this family are quite common here (especially Eurasian Magpie and Eurasian Jay). Smile

Thanks a lot for the information. Wink

I hope that I can take some shots of crows. Their vigilance and black appearance make it a difficult task. Sad Wish me good luck! Wink

Even though no-one wished me good luck [ Mad ], I still managed to get a decent shot of a member of the aforementioned intelligent species. Surprisingly, its feather is not black but dark-blue (or blue-black) in color. Shocked

I wonder how did you manage to take this photo? Did you use telephoto lens or simple zoom was enough? Smile

BTW, the beautiful bird presented in your picture reminds me a bit of Common Starling but it's rather unlikely that those are the same species.

Well, according to the Wikipedia source, the legs of the Common Starling are pink in color. Besides, the dark-blue bird in my photo looks pretty similar to the following species of the Crow family:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Corvus-brachyrhynchos-001.jpg

So, I believe it belongs to that family as well. Wink

I took the picture with the following entry-level digital camera:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx510_hs

which provides 30x optical zoom and superb image stabilization. Of course, the image quality of its small sensor cannot rival that of a micro four thirds or APS-C counterpart. But its price tag, size, and weight are all amazingly pocket-friendly. Wink

The tool is not as much important as the photographer's talent. You can take awesome photos using only camera obscura. Wink

The presented butterfly looks a bit like the aforementioned Peacock butterfly (Inachis io).

Bro, I guess you would also need a photographic film. Wink
