DA*300 F4 as a backyard butterfly lens
9

I generally use this lens to shoot backyard birds, but one day this butterfly settled down to walk around this flower allowing me to shoot it at from multiple viewpoints. Very impressed with the overall IQ from this lens.

Enjoy.

American Lady butterfly. With the K5iiS it's a bit of a trick to get close-up steady shots with effectively a 450mm lens. The in-body stablizations works.

I never realized how hairy its back is until I looked at this image up-close.

The web-like markings with the two blueish circles on the lower back wing are indicative of the American Lady butterfly. This lens gives a 3-dimensionality to the web-like markings.

Best viewed at original size.
