saly, great set of photos, really nice colours. The last butterfly is amazing, except I find heavily out-of-focus things in the foreground a bit distracting. One day I'm going to have to try an LC-55!

Thanks and yes those flowers are in the way. These butterflies never stay still for more than a second or two so I'm just aiming and snapping away as fast as I can, and hope some of them come out sharp. This wasn't the greatest composition, but I like looking at his face.

Much better un-cropped, with the butterfly face in the centre.

Thank you LTZ, they are not quite as sharp as yours and Clint's, but I'm trying! Those wood duck are really beautiful birds. Unfortunately they like to hang out in a very dark shadowy part of the pond and I can never get them quite in focus. They are also very shy and I have to wait very still for a long time. Next time I will make sure to take my monopod.
