Took these with my 200mm f/4 micro. I was glad to have the Aphrodite Fritillary visit my cone flowers.

Birgit,
These are all beautiful, but # 3 is my favorite of the set.
Thank you. There has been a scarcity of butterflies here this year.

CrystallP I agree with Paul, outstanding!! Number three is my favorite too! Please send the fritillaries down to Maryland!! LOL!![/QUOTE

I was on my way out the driveway to shoot dragons when I spied this butterfly. Good thing I stopped to shoot it, because my dragonfly pond parking lot was closed.

You can see in #4 that a sudden breeze (car driving by) came up.

I agree with Paul and Crystall, but #4 is favorite, so I guess, I don't agree!!! :) Great set Birgit...
Thank you. I like the "wind" in #4. Every time a car drove by, the flowers would blow in the breeze, the butterfly would leave and come back.

tojor A very beautiful set Birgit. A great use of a great lens.
Thank you Torben. I hope you are enjoying yours!

BUCKEYE BIKER Another vote for #3. Lovely shots, Birgit.
Thank you.

TomP Well I will have to agree, # 3 is very good, but the whole set is great, and the light on 4 makes it stand out.
Thanks!

raian The sharpness of #3 is great but I wish there was a tad more room in front of the butterfly. I like #4 as well. I like them all actually, just trying to pick my favorite :)
Thank you Linda. I always have the originals, can crop #3 to show more room on the right. I agree with you looking at it again.

monkay excellent work. #3 is my favorite...haha these are pretty much 10x better versions of what i just went out and took
Oh you will get there. Takes practice:wink:
