my butterfly collection

I found these butterfly photos from a couple of years ago….all except,I think its a painted lady, where taken in my garden.
I am hoping, when I get to grips with the technical side of my camera, to get some more insect close ups in the coming months

Absolutely stunning photos lw.
Jane, didn't you say that you had the FZ38?. If so, put it on "iA", you've then got macro to infinity.

You'll be fine Littlewren. This is my favourite Homer Simpson quote -
'Every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain!'
Yep, that's me . . . lol.
