Taken on a recent visit to Blean Woods. My first attempt at butterflies. Not as sharp as I had hoped, but I'm still learning.
Unfortunately, we forgot to take the macro lens with us, so I had to resort to the standard 70-210 lens! One of my best shots, but I hope to get some better ones with the proper lens next time!

Came out well considering. Nice shot.
tried a flutterby myself yesterday. using closeup lens x4. alas a little out of fous as yours. not tired with macro lens.
like this one though you got the "open wing" shot i was after
How do you get the background to blur? Is it the closeup lens that does that (I'm still learning too...)
Great composition though, congratulations on the shot Have you tried using high drive? I got a series of photos of a butterfly fluttering away. Looks better if the photos are put together
Great capture - nice specimens!
Seen my ones?
A nice shot considering the lens you were using, i think butterflies are one of the hardest subjects to photograph properly.
I must try to get more shots of them in my portfolio.
Beautiful shot colour and detail
thank you all.
karski - more luck than judgement, but I think it was due to the aperture setting.
Lovely capture,two for the price of one.Good composition.
