thanx again... as we said the minolta may not be the nest camera in today's standard, but when there is planty of light and the object is still you can capture pretty good photos. and the macro you turned me onto is indeed excelent i like how you can see every hair on this fella.

not only the fella is very clear etc, but the background striking! he looks like he is holding and extra-terrestial ball of light in front of his third eye, and the setting is like from an Orson Welles movie.

it is a moth, well captured macro

I read that butterflies rest with their wings up and moths rest with their wings flat. but it definitely looks like a moth.
Thanks anyhow...

I think it might be a butterfly - a skipper

By the way all, i totally did not think of the background when i took this but was trying hard to get a good shot of this creature, chasing him all over and waiting for him to pose still... it is a mere coincidence that the background turned out to be impressive. this was taken at a backyard of a house i was renting and i have no idea what was out there behind the little guy... :)
