nice work steve – hard keeping everything in focus. Did you go in any closer on any shots – 4" from the subject is your focusing distance
I used the focus in manual for better results. Cant get too close to these as they fly off! Thanks mate
What a fantastic capture! like Lori, I have never seen one of these… and this is amazing with such detail!! although wouldn’t expect any less from a photographer as talented as you!! I always look forward to your work!!
Now you’ve made me blush now! lol Thanks shane
Incredible Steve. Wonderful macro.—steve

Gorgeous – love how you really can see through their wings! Excellent catch!
Thank you maxy
Again a fabulous capture Steve!!! I too have only seen this species on pictures – you did a great job on this!!!
I tried my best in a very humid, sweaty butterfly house! Thanks Kate
