    That's a lovely set of images! Nice and crisp, nice colours, good dof.

    (I was hoping to get some butterfly pics today, but the little conservatory I went to has posted a notice that it has closed due to economic reasons. :( So I was happy to open this thread and see your pics)

    Awww that's a shame. I guess these economic times are hurting those small places badly. I really enjoy shooting the little guys. I think I've learned alot since I tried it last year and had some better results this time. Thanks for looking and commenting :)

    Thanks all ...

    These are fun and a challenge to shoot. Just as you get ready to expose -- off they flit :)
