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!
