Re: Flutterbys

Numbers 2 and 3 are crackers... how close were you when you took #2? The detail is fantastic...

Re: Flutterbys

No 2, woah! That's what I call close up!

An excellent set and a day well spent.

Number 2 is a crop of the picture below.

I was very close, 10-15cms away

Re: Flutterbys

Hello Tim,
These are great, I haven't seen many Peacocks this year. The crop of the Large White is excellent, I find the 60mm macro will take a 50% crop without losing much detail allowing you to keep your distance from nervous subjects.
Regards Jim.

When I take a picture I always take 3, for some reason the middle one usually is crisper than the first and last.

Re: Flutterbys

Lovely set of images - No.2 is just incredible, the tones in the wings and close up detail is superb and would look great on a magazine cover.

Lovely set of images, I know it's already been said but No 2 is exceptional.
