Great shots. Love the butterfly places.

The fog on the lenses is a pain though - they keep those places sooo hot!

Never thought of using a 70-300 in a butterfly place. Usually concentrate on macro or short zoom. Think I may try that next time.

Do you use the full zoom or just the macro end?

For anyone in the Northwest area, there is a great live butterfly house at the science center near the space needle in Seattle. I've been there twice now and it's a lot of fun and great place to spend some time taking pictures- Bruce

BTW- as a side note we have a wildflower that blooms in the mountains in August, usually on sunny rocky slopes. The Indians called it Coyote Mint and it goes by the more common name of Mountain Monardella. The butterflies and bees love the distintive smell, so it is a favorite place to photographbutterflys in the Summer. Here is a picture of some, notice the bumblebee. This shot was taken with my Fuji several years ago.

Reminds me got a free pass to the Key West Butterfly Conservancy fro a "secret Santa" gift (though I know who it came from :-))

Now that I have the much more capable K10D vs last time first Gen Rebel, and better lens.
