a peacock butterfly
oh wow… beautiful
Ian, how far away are you from these creatures when you take their mug?
it varies to be honest,with the butterflies you need to be a good 6 feet away so you have a chance of them staying put,so i’ll use the 300mm lens…but with the flies if your careful you can get pretty close,so i use the 18 - 55mm with close up filters on,a few inches away
Those are beautiful! Great detail!
