Some colorful flutterby fun


Sony ILCE-7RM5 FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS /8.0 600.0 mm 1/2000 iso800

I might have liked the shadow as much as the subject, heh.

Here's lookin at you kid

Sony ILCE-7RM5 FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS /8.0 594.0 mm 1/2000 iso3200

You'll have to take my word for it, there was a butterfly here before I hit the shutter. Heh. I thought the flower was still nice in the early morning yellow glow.

Good looking set Eric. Have you tried stopping down more to see if more of the wings are sharp?

Thanks Morris! Not really... for a couple reasons. That lens peaks at F8 and diffraction starts to show later and sharpness goes down, so I'm thinking any gains are lost, and I'd rather have the nice soft bokeh. That BF's wings were pretty ragged at the edges anyway. Also, CAF probably takes a hit as you stop down I would think too, at those shutter speeds, I have no idea how long it would take the iris to open back up between shots and allow the on-sensor CAF magic to happen and track stuff... so unless I'm doing static stuff, I'm resigned pretty much to 6.3 to 8.0 territory max I think.

Thanks Karl, not sure what happened on #2, it seemed about right at the time, heh.

Thanks so much John! Sometimes the garden shots a leave me in an entirely different mood than birding, more of a tranquil deal I guess.

You are too kind Dan, thanks.

When anything with a proboscis that long sticks its tongue out at you, you know it!
