I see what you mean, the shot had a lot of potential. Small-view looks good though...

The flash is the problem. The light is too harsh on these small creatures, so I should probably use a kind of defuser next time :)

That would be the best idea. Can you adjust the strength of your flash? That may help also.

Yes, I can adjust my flash in several ways. I just have to experiment a bit as I don't use it very often :)

I know what you mean, plus by the time I get around to needing it, I've forgotten how to do it!

Hahaha...except they are very small and more likely to get eaten by a bird, I think :) But they're so beautiful and I really want to get a good shot of one of these :)

I just ordered some polarizers for my Nikon, hoping they might help a little. ^^;
This was NOT my year for butteflies. Had to cheat and shoot pics at the zoo's butterfly house. :( No regrets on pics of the viceroy though. May never see one again. :aww:

I thought you might get the "birds into glass windows" joke. ;)

I don't think it's cheating to shoot at the butterfly house. As long as you don't claim the pics were taken in your own backyard ;)

Yeah, I got your joke all right - and it was a good one ;)

Ha ha ha, make no mistake that I'm claiming that Owl butterflies visit MY backyard. :rofl: ;)
