    I had a play with my macro lens today, I went to Lancaster butterfly house which again is a first so all in all a double first and for my first attempt I'm pretty pleased,

    Let me know what you think. (Sorry I don't know the names of the butterflies)

    Cracking for a first go......That must have been a pretty small bird ;)

    Do you mind me asking what lens and lighting you used?

    Cheers.

    A great start - no three for me, I think two is a strong one two, had that have had the same angle as three it would have been my pick.

    The second is a Malachite Butterfly
    The third and fifth are both Zebra Butterflies
    The fourth is a Monarch Butterfly

    I feel like a geek, but I only know as I did some research after visiting a butterfly zoo myself :LOL:

    Great captures, with 2 & 3 being my favs!
