I love your butterfly shots! You have multiple ones in a single shot, lucky you!! I would love to see a few of them cropped a bit tighter, #4, #5 and #8 in particular.

Great butterfly pics.. looks like there's some noise tho in the last shot of the bird.. unless it's just my monitor. Not bad but little noticeable.

Still a great pic tho.

I took some bird shots today too but I haven't uploaded them off my camera tho.

Some of those shots are very hard to get good results from. You did, very good job.

Looking good but try adjusting the white balance for sun instead of auto - I've found it helps a lot when the image contains anything which is close to primary red like the flowers in these shots.

Really like the second shot in the second post with 3 species of butterfly in one shot
