    Well part of day two of the dragon hunt involved me in a field chasing butterflies - and they really can move when they want to - extra hard in long grass (and thorns, than thistles, and the odd nettle too!)
    Again I was experimenting with a greater depth of field for these shots as well:

    All shots taken with Canon 400D + sigma 150mm macro + 1.4 teleconverter + speedlite 580M2 + softbox

    I got his tongue in focus, but his eyes, not enough depth for them as well :(

    end of the day and heading back I was dissapointed that I had just lost track of a beauty of a butterfly - so standing for a moment I looked down -- and there he was! And he even sat still for what was (for a butterfly in the early evening) a long time!

    The 4th shot is my favourite, nice tone and composition.
