    Not bad considering you were having trouble getting focus. Did you have to crop at all or did you actually get that much of it in the frame?

    Nice catch. Maybe you want to desaturate about 10% in PP.

    They have a poisonous gas/glue mixture that they let waft over the butterfly ahead of time. It kills it and preserves it's posture. Then they can take their time.:thumbup:

    Or maybe not.

    About 1/3 of the frame is cropped out.

    Perhaps the colours look a bit intense due to the evening light.

    Not all that close, about 10' (3M), any closer it would fly off & have to wait for it to land again. I was using full zoom & a Sony 1.7x tele-converter out front.

    We have a theme thread in the Photo Themes called "Good Photos Taken with a P&S". This one should go there.
