Beautiful picture. Very harmonizing colours. Have you noticed that the dots are exactly like dots on cabbage. Nature's wonders or rather practicality

Very nice capture. I can never get them to sit still long enough to get a good shot. That's where I should be using my telephoto, but I always have my macro on when I see oneamong the flowers. Suchis life- Bruce

Bruce, this was taken with the Tamron 70-300 LD Macro which magnifies up to 1:2 in the close-up range (at 180-300 mm focal length) -useful as a walkabout lens as its LWD (long working distance) allowsgood flexibility for being able to capture the unexpected - great for insects and flowers as well. There may be "better" lenses, but I find myself using this one the most.

As a followup to the above comment about flexibility of the Tamron lens, which was mounted on the camera at the time Igrabbed it to takethese other pictures, please see the following thread:

Just love the three-dimensional effect created out of the side lighting. Wonderful capture of a beautiful butterfly and a beautiful shrub.
