Default Beauties Up Close - The 2nd around ;)

I had so much fun with butterflies the other day: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/wi...-up-close.html

-> Problem is, I was shooting people portraits with the 120-300 f/2.8 on that occasion when I finished the day in the butterfly garden with the wrong lens. 'Macro' images were not that lens forte so I had to come back for more with now the correct lens: (Sigma 150mm):

Very nice NHL. I was able to use that lens briefly when it first came out for the A-mount and was really impressed with it.
Being able to use it for an event like this must have been a lot of fun.

Yes, I agree
-> If I can keep the background at least twice as far as the flash distance to the butterfly then it all turned black!
