Another beauty, Tim. I do like this style of framing you use - it really sets off the image. Note you seem to be using the 70-200 lens a lot; it certainly is producing some stunning images.

Thank you all for your very kind encouragement. Jon it's good to be back!

Vicky yes the new 70-200 is fabulous for butterflies and flowers, while not 1:1 it enables you to get good distance and fabulous bokeh around the subject. The only catch is the weight!

Cheers,

Tim
