A Speckled Wood butterfly, looking fresh and new. Probably straight out of a chrysalis.

Like it.  Lovely markings.  I find butterflies really difficult to capture and you've done well.  Use a long lens and you need a decent shutter speed which means opening up the aperture and then you lose DoF.   Do you auto for manually focus?   I have the SA 135mm with the sdQH and for this type of shot I find AF very hit and miss.  Manual and focus peaking with enlargement is way better but takes tooooo long and the things flown or moved before I hit the shutter.
