The way I usually capture bugs is with my 50mm with a macro filter attached, not so good with butterflies as they're so skittish and sense any movement before you've even moved it would seem. So I decided to give my zoom a go today. I was at my best friend's writing an assignment and took a break in her garden where there were dozens of butterflies fluttering around her buddleia bush. Unfortunately it was incredibly windy so getting a decent shot in focus was almost impossible. I did like this one though with its multi coloured background. Here are a couple more as I couldn't decide today. The first one was taken with my 50mm+macro filter and is artistically out of focus ;o) The second one has been ETSOOIed to within an inch of its life.
I'm looking forward to catching up with you all this evening. I hope everyone's had a marvellous weekend xx
