We found this moth on the window sill this morning, he had fantastic colours when he opened his wings. These are cropped images... was shooting with the 17-55.... might have to get an 100mm macro lens one of these days....

I like the dreamy feel of shot 2!

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

I agree with both Marko and Iggy. Nice to have such a pretty house mate :-)

Wonderful job just using a kit lens.

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.

Thanks HB, the 17-55 is my favourite lens at the moment.. :)
