Like the way the colours of the butterfly blend into the background.
Nice DOF too. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Butterflies

just for the record :

I'm almost sure this is not a Heath Fritillary but a Glanville Fritillary. I shot this one myself this week, at nearly the same position. (can be seen a my pbase)

never mind ... just keep shooting

Re: Butterflies

Hi,

are you sure about it?
I have more pictures of the same piece on my web page

( http://www.harustak.sk?Home,Galleries,Wildlife,Insects,Butterflies ), so (in case you did not before) you can have a look.
I'm trying to keep my descriptions accurate...so I do mind

Regards

yep

it's pretty easy to see.

The Melitaea cinxia has black spots in the brown squares of it's underwings. It's the only species of Melitaea which has that.

Ha, I was shooting butterfiles myself this weekend.

http://www.greygreen.org/tmp/bf/

How do you find the Sigma 70-300 APO Super Macro II? I think your results are better than mine, but there could be a lot of reasons for that of course. I'm using a Tamron 70-300 macro, but think I'd like to try the sigma for comparison.

Does the Sigma hunt much? And does it hunt quickly or slowly?

I've already posted multiple comments on this sigma lens.
(e.g. http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1034&message=9170510 )

I would say it is very good lens for EUR 200. Of course you could get much better macro lens (like Tamron 180mm) starting from EUR 650.

Yes it does. Slowly.
You can work it out a little by prefocusing.
Or going manual when you expect trouble in auto mode.

There's one common problem of multiple of your images.

You have a grass leaves / whatever between the subject and your lens, completely out of focus.
