Butterflies
 
It was a gloomy day here in Chennai. The already low light was falling rapidly in the afternoon, at which time I noticed these butterflies in the thick growth.

Thanks for looking. About 4 feet for the mating ones and about a one and a half foot for the brown one. No additional lens.

Raghu, if it was a gloomy day, you would not have done any better with the LC-55. Very hard to get sharp images in the shade or on cloudy days. Plus it disables the flash.
