The butterflies have finally rediscovered my flower garden this year … I’ve missed them so!!! And just in time for the new camera and for me to have gotten the problems with camera settings vs the 70-300mm vr Nikon lens resolved, as well!! YAY!! Thanks again to everyone who chipped in with suggestions!! Nikon Lens Question

Image taken July 21, 2009 with the Nikon D300 and the 70-300mm vr Nikon lens. Shutter 1/200, Aperture f/11.0, exp -.67, iso 400. Minor photoshopping included some clean up of the petals (they were a bit ragged) and tinkering in levels.
