On a visit to the Mini Indonesia park with Tjutjut (Treklens guy), we saw some butterflies and tried some close ups using the zoom lens.

Hi Murray,
that's beautiful, I like the softness of the flower and this wonderful butterfly sitting on it. A perfect arrangement, I like it very much.
Greetings to you and also to Tjutjut - I haven't met him at TL for a longer time - is he still posting??? I have to look for him ...

Hello Murray,
interesing light and beautiful colours! Also the point of view is very attractive. The specimen shown is
a female of Hypolimnas bolina (family: Nymphalidae). The focus should be on the body of the butterfly.
Here, it is sightly in front of the butterfly. A larger depth of field would have worked, also.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Murray,
here I prefer
Exposure: f/9.1, 1/200 seconds

hello Murray
Wow, what a beautiful shot! all is perfect : the butterfly, his pose, the flowers, the colors and the sharpness, Bravo

Hi Murray, splendid colours and nice composition. Beautiful butterfly too.
TFS and cheers,

Hi Murray,

The close-up point of view is shwoing the details and colors of the butterfly taking nectar from the flower. The picture is clear and sharp. The colors are enhanced by the quality of the light. Have a nice day.
