Thanks for the kind remarks. I think Chris did a good job with the rework, although I too like both shots. I still wish I could have gotten just a bit closer to the butterfly, though.
I'm continually surprised whatmy FujiS5000turns out, I know a lot of people down it for one reason or another (in all fairness, it is pretty noisy in some situations), but any 300 dollar camera that can takea shot like this in full auto mode isn't doing too bad. And I love the color this camera reproduces. One of these days I'm gonna have to get a good enough handle on the manual settings to be able to use them to full advantage, though, as I'm sure it would improve some of my shots.
