    Have had hard time getting close to take micro shot of butterfly's with the 60mm micro lens. So tried using the 70-210 zoom lens to see what I could capture. Not bad for first couple times using this lens, however lots of room for improvement.

    Tripod used Focal length 210, Exposure 1/100s at f/9

    Wow, Neil! The composition and color on the 4th shot nearly blew me out of my seat. Beautiful!
     
  3. Very nice butterfly shots, Neil. I like the 6th one which is colourful.

    Nice shots Neil. Did you notice the little teeny bug flying between the butterfly and the flower stalk in the last one? Cool capture. :wink:
     
  6. I too saw that dive bomber coming in for a run in your last image. I got a kick out of that and would guess you didn't even know it was there when you made the shot.

    Frank & Gorden seen the little bug while working on the image. Never noticed it while taking picture. Thanks for the comments.
