    My Zilker Botanical Garden trips are numbered, but boy was the butterfly garden spunky yesterday. A bit breezy, but worth the challenge to capture these wonderfully colored butterflies.

    All captured with a Canon EOS 30D, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro lens, and this DIY Ring-Flash.

    *makes a mental note to un-ignor list Lextalionis when summer comes around again ;) *

    as always very impressed with your shooting!
    And very jealous of the depth of field and brightness of your shots - the bee and fly have fantastic depths and details to them ( as well as colours)!
