In very harsh sun, but managed to get it right.



I got a rather unusual angle here:


A favourable angle:


C&C welcome.

Excellent shots. I would just reduce the aperture a tad bit to increase the DoF a little. I see that the tip of the wings on the third shot is OOF because of the very shallow DoF. It would be nice to have the entire butterfly on focus.

Thank you for the comments and feedback. Tullio, at f/6.3, the aperture was already quite small. I think it must have been either the angle or the movement (the butterfly was constantly moving in search of nectar on that bunch of little flowers) that has caused the tip of the wings to be out of focus. Thanks for the observation.
