    Cool. I like #2 as well but seeing the wings all spread out in #3 is very cool.

    Thanks guys, turns out it's not a moth it's a Small tortoiseshell butterfly. (I tracked it down on google). I might try iggy's reversing a 50mm technique next year.

    Beautiful captures on all three Richard. Love the detail in shot 3. That is one sweet lens, and who needs a macro with shots like this.
    Reality is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!
