Really pretty butterfly, would wish for a bit more DOF so that the far wing is sharp.

Agree.
I normally shoot them around f/13 or so, didn’t check my settings when I grabbed the camera out of the Jeep - down here I shoot a lot of butterflies, so I stupidly assumed. . . .
Good light,
Craig

Hi

Nice looking butterfly and although a solid capture perhaps not an ideal shot if u know what I mean


All the best
Matthew
