...in Stratford upon Avon. Didn't take any macro lenses or I'd have returned with shots of butterfly heads - only Very Happy

First two are with 70-200 @ 200mm, last is with a 28mm prime. All handheld single shots.

Pretty good!
I did a trip to a local buttefly house a while back, thinking it would just be something to do while I waited for summer. I had so much fun I went again. I would recommend it it anyone (who is not already in the tropics, of course)!

I second that. My main motivation for going was to test a camera for potential overheating problems, but like you, I enjoyed it so much I'm going back next week. There were so many butterflies I got a bit "snap happy" at times so I intend to slow down and take fewer, more "considered" shots next time.

Lovely sharp images. I would need a tripod for that. What were the setting?

Thanks. Settings were around f/5.6 to f/8 and 1/125th sec for most of the images I took that day. This using aperture priority with ISO floating on auto. ISO ranged from 250 to 1600 depending on the light. I'd like to say I have super-steady hands - but I can't. It was mainly fast-tracking, continuous AF and 5 stops of in-body stabilisation that kept things nice and sharp (Sony A9). Like having an invisible tripod really Smile
