WHERE have you been hiding these??? LOVE the second one and that you kept it vertical – very interesting! Lovely butterfly, too with nice simple background (like that it is light in color to really make the butterfly’s colors ‘pop’). Ours were out yesterday but are back in hiding on this drizzley day. I shot this one last year and it is one of my all-time favs:
Nice post to wake up to! 😀

Thank you! They were hiding on a DVD 😉 I was looking for some old pics of the kids to post, and came across these. The butterfly was sitting on a tree in my backyard, and it’s the ONLY time I’ve ever seen one of these.
Love your photo, too! I have a similar one of a monarch, but front view.

What an unusual butterfly! I don’t think I have ever seen one, especially up this close 🙂

WOW, what a great catch, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this type of butterfly but then again, I don’t have a macro 😉 Lol!

Amazing, love the second one!

Like the front on view. He looks mean. LOL
Okay, I need help with macros lenses. You have a 60mm, Tracy has a 105mm. I know there’s a 200mm out there. How does focal length in a macro work? The longer, the closer?

Good question! I have no idea! Never had the chance to REALLY compare them, and I just picked the 60mm because it sounded good. I love it, though.
I can get really, really close with mine, literally just inches away from the subject, and it’s a nice portrait lens, too.
Hopefully Tracy knows a bit more than I do.

Like Michaela, I only have the one macro lens so I have no comparison details. I don’t believe the longer the focal length, the closer you can get. I think the difference is in DOF.
I found this article comparing the two lenses:
Now, they are talking about underwater photography, but I don’t think it makes a difference.

Maybe this is just the perfect excuse for a trip to B&H! 😉

I’m looking forward to going to B&H – for the first time. It is one of my ‘Musts’ for New York City.

I like the way you have placed the focal point in these close-ups. #1 is my favourite.

these are absolutely amazing!!!

ooh nice photos from the archives. I love how you captured the details of this beautiful butterfly

Wonderful! I had taken some photos of a moth Monday evening. I almost posted it until i saw this. 🙂 Great shots!
