  5. These are excellent images for a 300mm lens Frank. Usually one does not get so much detail from it.

  7. I LOVE these photos. That last one is just wonderful. It looks like its wings are bordered with a delicate white fringe. Have a great weekend.

  8. Super results from that 70-300 Frank, good colour rendition and sharpness, I have done some research on it and may put it on my wish list.

  9. there is something about those blue dont you think Frank, little stunners!

    I take my butterfly photo's with a 70-300 lens, and crop them, as you did today, I find this gives a more realistic view of them.
