    Went to Amsterdam zoo again and since it was sh!tty weather, i just walked on to the butterfly garden. I had some fun with the cactus trigger again. This time i tried to pay more attention to the background, so they would look less busy.
    I think it worked out pretty good :mrgreen:

    Excellent series Daan. That #7 shot of the Glass Wing is top of the heap. Sharp and with an intersting bg.

    Thanks for the replies everyone :)
    About the background: I shoot at F13 with a shutterspeed of 1/200. Normally i would get a very very very dark picture. So i use a flash. With using the flash you light the subject, but everything behind it gets dark, because there just isnt enough light. And if you make sure there isnt anything like a leave of twig behind the butterfly, you get a very clean, dark background. In photoshop you just slide some sliders and voila, black background :)
