Hey ya'll. I am sorry that I have not been too active here recently. For the first time in my life I am looking forward to the return of daylight savings time. These butterfly pictures are probably the first real use the K100 had seen since New Years. This first fellow held still long enough for me tophotograph him at F8, F6.7, F4.5, F4, and F2.8. This is my first successful macro atF2.8, handheld as well.

Thanks for looking,

Tim

The picture is not upside down, he was hanging on upside down sampling the flower.

Finally, this guy had apparently flown through the garden sprinkler on his way to his landing place. Thanks for looking, tips, criticism, and suggestions are always appreciated.

Thanks,

Tim

tim,
good to see you back posting.
these are all nice but the latter pix at the higher aperture value are the best IMHO.

The last pic is awesome.

In pics 3 and 4, the eye is so sharp, it looks stuck on!

All good shots.

Tim,

Great Job! I really like the shallow dof in that first shot.

Keep em coming!
