Painted Lady

Is there a better way to try out your new camera? This butterfly was posing, I'm telling you. It was also very lively, flying from one blossom to another, but always keeping close.

Here in Slovenia, we call this butterfly Osatnik, it's latin name is Vanessa Cardui - those from English speaking countries might know it under the names Painted Lady or Cosmopolitan. Wikipedia rocks!

Did I mention I love my new camera? It's so much faster than my little digital one. I still take all my nail polish photos with the old one though (that's Traveler DC-8300). Nikon is just to heavy and clumsy (or is that me?) to use for nail photos.

Thanks for looking!


  1. great pictures <3
    I have Canon Eos 550D and I use it for nail polish photos are way better than with my compact camera Canon SX200IS

  2. oh wow, seems your camera is doing a pretty awesome job! :D

  3. Ahhh... čudovite slike.
    Moj tast ima tud Nikona, pa sem poskusila slikat nohte z njim, ampak ne gre. Je preveč kompakten in ga je potrebno držati z obema rokama.

  4. Fantastic photo! I think you can get eye looks from the colors of butterflys.

  5. Ohhh I'm a butterfly lover, and a have butterflies tattoo too: That's is how much I love them!

    Yes, the pictures have A grat quality, well done!

  6. Did you think about a little tripod? Like a Joby Gorillapod, they make types that can support the weight of DSLR but they are still little and cute :) I know a lot of bloggers like using little cameras to take nail polish pics because DSLRs are just clumsy to use but I don't know if a little tripod would help.

  7. Zelo lepe slike! Metuljček/ica je pa tudi prekrasna =)

  8. čudovite fotografije! :) upam da nimaš nič proti, da je prva moje novo ozadje ;)
