We went to the London Butterfly House today, and as well as some fun shots of the butterflys (over in Wildlife) I snapped this lad looking very serious.

ya....! Great capture. What camera did you use? I have noticed from time to time that digital cameras, particulairly in pics of some birds, and butterflys, take such a sharp picture that the subject almost seems detatched in focus (only way I can think to say it) from the rest of the picture. I get this effect with the butterfly on my monitor. Panasonic's FZ20 is one camera I noticed do this. Mallard ducks (the males) seem almost unreal, even more than this butterfly. in fact I think in the Panasonic forum there's at least onegood example. Just curious, best regards,

Hi Kenneth,

Canon EOS 20D + 17-85mm lens.

Pictures direct from the camera are fairly soft due to a low-pass anti-moire filter that most digicams don't have.

So most photos need to be sharpened in post processing. Perhaps I've over-done this one slightly.

It's a bit tricky because people don't want too much sharpening as a rule, but I thought the butterfly did.

Aaaah....I wonder what he's thinking? Butterflies are such a wonder, aren't they?

Nice shot...thanks for sharing! :-)

Nice shot. Could possibly become a "stock photo" in categories such as education, childhood, etc.
