A few weekends ago I had the opportunity to go to a butterfly sanctuary... unfortunately I didn't take my tripod along, I was on my way somewhere else when I saw the sign and knew I had to go...

Hello Jaco. With no tripod and exceptional effort. Good colour and superb backgound. Lovely detail in the head. Well done and TFS,

PS I have just finished watching AU beat the English, how they managed a result out of that many runs scored I don't know.

The way the limited DOF is used to create the concentration on the face of the butterfly is really masterful.
