Another stunning swallowtail in flight shot *sigh*

I see you were 2.1m away for the shot? and at ISO800. That 7D does impress with the detail it resolves and noise control. Definitely an improvement over the 50D in both respects I'd say. I know the images for EPZ are relatively small, but even so, given the circumstances, the detail captured is pretty impressive!

Thanks Charlotte, you're very kind!

John yes a great camera the 7D. I also have the 550D and it's like junk in comparison.

Cheers,

Tim

Extraordinary achievement, Tim. Remarkable detail set against a background that emphasises the butterfly's flight. Many congratulations on the EC.
