Re: E-410 + 70-300

This is a Red Admiral. A very nice image. Butterflies are a particularly difficult subject for macro as you have to align yourself perfectly to the plane of their wings or use a very small aperture with consequent diffraction problems. I have taken many shots with one or more parts of the wings being OOF and unfortunately cannot persuade the creature to align itself! It is difficult to move to the right position as they detect movement and may decide not to co-operate, luck plays a big part. Well done.
