out on the edge of no where, realising i hadnt got the right lens for the job, this blur butterly landed, the feet was just landing in that wind, the grass was laying almost flat and the challenge was there.. get a clear image on 200mm. one option was wait till the wind stopped and 'snap one off' or as it turned out, the only 'clear' shot image was when the grass was blustered flat down.
god knows how the butterfly held on.

Fantastic colours and detail and I really like the shallow dof, works really well IMHO.
