The butterflies are migrating

  1. I am trying to come to grips with using my D300, and was lucky enough, today, to have a couple of hours to chase some butterflies with it. Here are a few samples. I do not have a proper macro lens, so these were taken with a Sigma 17-70 and Nikon 70-200. I took these at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens, in Belmont, North Carolina.

  2. Looks like you're coming to grips with your camera fairly well. :biggrin:
     
  3. Thanks for the comment, Jen. It looks like it will take a while to become familiar enough with the camera's settings to get results with which I am comfortable. However, I do love the way that it handles, compared to the D70 that I have used for the past several years.
