Ed at Ridersite: My favorite! Butterflies in flight are much more difficult than bees or dragon flies. Congrats on 2nd place in a difficult challenge and nice shootin!
Thank you very much and I appreciate your comment.
Well Done and Excellent Detail.
barb_s: Just about my favorite. What a smooth background and nice cropping on this one!
Thank you very much for your comment and vote. The 400 f5.6 consistantly gives me a very nice subject bokeh and crop.
RuthC: Congratulations, noiseless, on coming second in this great challenge. A beautiful capture of this lovely butterfly. Ruth :-)
Much appreciated comment and vote. I was Very Happy to place in the top ten.
noiseless: I didn't have the time to read all these post and check that I was not repeating simeones. My apology.
I hope the 70D is less noise and better focus than the 7D. It already list lower original retail price. If so, should be great for stop action at 400mm driving it to 640 with the 1.6 sensor. Help me out on this one. Please comment as I enjoy capturing birds and butterflies in flight with a 5DIII and a 400 f5.6 user freindly fix lens not to mention decent quality. Bring on the comments.
Thanks for the info. I'll give it try went it hits the rental shelf and team it up with the 400 f/2.8 VR. Should be interesting.

grigorgio: Fantastic capture !!
Much appreciated and thank you.
cmantx: Congratulations on 1st place. Well deserved. Capturing a butterfly-in-flight is not an easy thing to do.
Thank you very much for your comment.
blue skies: Beautiful shot. Congratulations on No 1.
Much appreciated. Thank you.
dachshund7: Beautiful shot! Congratulations!
Thank you very much.
Mikhail Tal: I guarantee you this was composited onto a separate background in photoshop. Virtually impossible to get this shot straight out of the camera.
Much appreciate and I am flattered by your comment. The capture was straight out of the Canon with a tight crop and using DPP with a little post contrast and sharpening. That 400 f5.6 fix lens works well with stop action from 10 to 15 meters with pretty good bokeh.
I really appreciate all your comments and the win. Thank you very much.
Great Stop Action. Well Done and Deserving.
Congratulations! I Really Liked this Capture. Well Done!
Falconest174: Very crisp image of this bird, frozen in mid-flap, nice.
Thank you for the compliment. Much appreciated.
Thats about as close you can get to a Well Done Touch. Great Capture.
GrailSeeker69: Whatta capture!
Congratulations! Beautiful Scene. The Mirror Reflections of the sky are Excellent. Well Done!
The Timing is Excellent with the Mirror Image off the pond. Post Card or Calendar Material. Well Done!
Naga Praveen: Excellent shot. Cheers.
Thank you very much for your compliment.
