Lovely shot. Really interesting to see how well a close up CAN be taken with a 100-400 lens.
I am interested that you used extension tubes - I must research this. Thanks for the inspiration.

I like the depth you got into this one with the thistle heads and of course the butterfly is nicely framed and sharp.

Hardly ever think of using extension tubes with digital Nikii, always used them for my close-ups with my OM2. A lovely composition & soft background . Would make a delightful card xx
