glenn, i didn't say i didn't get good shots. just not all the ones i'd expect. there's 15 shots posted at the link i gave with some more to come..

P, you're right but i still prefer to use manual when taking close ups. i've tried AF and missed even more. i should have bumped the lens up to f11 also.. i think some of the problem was using a new lens also..

The BFs are beautiful, the Blue Morpho with folded wings also a beautiful shot. Can you provide us with a closeup of the plant's flowers and leafs?

I was thinking of the last one with the blue flowers. On closer inspection I see thatit is nota bush, but some substrate formed as a butterfly with pansies on it.

The first of your new ones looks like a Heliconia species, I don't know what the second is. But it's beautiful.

I think those are nice Roy, and I know what you mean about the glasses issue. I have to take mine off for anything closer than 5 feet which is becoming a real pain. I can't wait to leave them someplace where I set them down.
