My first Butterfly, not exactly a macro, as I was using my Sigma 150-500. It took a while before he settled, just for a few seconds, and I took the chance.
I hope this isn't too bad, not being an expert at these beautiful creatures.
Enjoy your weekend, I popping out this morning , so I will catch up with you all later.
Many thanks for all your C&C's, appreciated.
Steve.

Well done - I know the feeling, caught several a few days ago and am plucking up the courage to upload them. You have a good composition, detail and colours. Carole

A lovely image with great colours, Steve. It's very rewarding capturing these, they don't stop long but on occasions they will stay a minute or two twirling around the flower, hope this will be first of many in the future.

A really sharp shot of the red admiral Steve a great first attempt, my preference and it is only my preference is i like to see the face of the Butterfly if possible but to be fair it's not always possible.
But a great shot and i can't take that away from you Steve, your photography is very good with the wild life keep it up and i look forward to seeing much more.

Ian.
