White Flying Flower (Butterfly) and still life shots!
Jun 20, 2012

Went for a walk in a neighborhood, where I used to work, this past weekend.

I've seen these whitish Butterflies flappin around, but never thought to try and shoot them,(always shot butterflies at zoo's...almost never in the wild)

But I wanted to give the ZS20 a workout...so decided to try and get a shot.

Paitence paid off...and I'm happy ...and ya know what's cool about it?

Shot at 480mm !! 20x optical zoom...handheld.
Image was cropped a bit,too.

Also there were plenty other nice flowers around:

None of these were shot at full wide angle, nor real close to the subject.

All shot around 300mm or greater.

Tele Macro feature, I believe.

Never thought this greater zoom range would be so usefull (Erik is probably laughing at me, ..as he knows already about the want/benefit for this type tele zoom range in a pocketable camera)

There's more, if anyone wants to see them
