Both excellent but slight noise Fred, it does not detract from two good macro shots! V2 for me.

I think you should have lead with V.2, Fred, a much sharper image, but both well captured. Carol

Yes, I think I would have lead with version 2 too. The colours are beautiful in both, but I like the fact that the eyes are in focus in version 2. Smile

I agree. They are wonderful shots. Very sharp. V2 has the edge on V1. The wings are amazing!

The colour is very eye catching Fred and I agree that I would have led with the lovely v2 which is a beauty.
