Oh common...these are eye candy Socrate. The colors are just so vivid and the IQ as good as it gets.

Thank for the kind words, Eric. A completely different feel from your impressive glacier images

Simply outstanding. I have the 300F4. I was planning on selling it as soon as I got the 2.8 big brother, but you had to show us these beautiful butterflies shot with it hm?

Some guys will use any excuse to not say they went to take pictures of 'flowers'

Then again there is nothing that makes a flower look better than what a lovely butterfly does!
Why are your images in RGB instead of sRGB??

Geeez these look nice Socrate. I battled a few shots recently and wished for the likes of an IS lens to help me. It is a treat to extract the eye detailing on these guys, unique patterns on those eyes. Really fine work on bringing out the details in those hairy bodies that suck up the light like a sponge.

Thank you much, Karl. Always a pleasure to read your much appreciated comments
Here are some technical info:
All were taken with the MkIV and the prime 300 f/4L IS just to get some dust off my beloved lens
Flash was used only in the first two images
The ISO setting was 1250 which gave me a pretty good SS
I don't know what happened to the Color Profile, but you are right: the second and third images are in RGB color space. Probably the box "covert to sRGB" in the "Save for Web and Devices..." panel got un-checked some how as I was also playing with some GIF images
Thanks again for stopping by and commenting, my friend.

One of my jobs in the local botanical garden is to tend the tithonia in the butterfly garden. I deadhead them every Thursday. They're also prominent in the Conservatory during the Festival of Butterflies. This is why.

When you get the checkerboard pattern this clear in a butterfly shot, you've gotten it as far as you can. Love them all -

If memory serves, this is your annual outing to a Butterfly Festival, no? I hope so - that means there will be more -



Thanks David I took these at a Butterfly Rainforest. It is an outdoor enclosure with tropical plants and hundreds of living butterflies open all year at a Museum of Natural History.

Thanks for your comments! I was also planning on selling this lens when I got the 2.8 big brother. As you can see after more than six years I'm still keeping the 300 f/4L IS

Wow Socrate,
These are just outstanding!!
I think #3 has a slight edge over 4 in the magnificence department, but only because more of the flower is showing. The whole set is just killer though man, awesome work.
