Australian Butterflies with the FZ200 and Canon 500d close-up lens.

Here are three butterflies that I took at the zoo using my Panasonic FZ200 fitted with the Canon 500d Close-up lens. The lens was attached to the end of an extension tube that I normally use for my teleconverter. In the past I have usually just attached the close-up lens to the end of the zoom lens, but I think it works a little better when it stays in one spot, rather than moving in and out with the zoom. More experimentation in probably justified. All shots were hand held. A tripod would have been handy, but there were a lot of people in the butterfly enclosure and it would have been almost impossible to set one up without incurring the wrath of all the other people. Its school holidays here and there were lots of small children and prams to contend with the entire time I was in there.
