.................A Butterfly.

I have two versions of this gorgeous Marbled White (female). This one was taken at a distance, using the camera's zoom. I quite like this one because a) a hover fly decided to get in frame and b) because of the oof background.

Version 2: This was taken with Super Macro within a few inches.

Personally I prefer version one, it seems sharper and the background less cluttered. I was a little disappointed with the second image because the edge of the wings are a bit fuzzy.

I was a little surprised, I thought getting the details on Super Macro at a very close distance would have provided more details, not less!

Perhaps I shall try zooming in from a distance a little more often, the number of times I've got too close and frightened the subject away! Smile

What a superb shot Karen. I am trying my hand at macro with my Panasonic FZ38 - I am trying Shutter priority with AF Macro-from about 4ft away - or Close up setting on the dial about 1" away but that relies on subject remaining in place. So I am taking some inspiration from your portfolio. Thanks for comment and confirmation of Speckled Wood.
