Everytime I saw a butterfly on my walk the other day they flew before I could get too close. This guy however was on a bench quite away away. So I set the camera to Macro, zoomed in a little. And then brought it up and cropped it with Picasa. Not a bad photo I think in the end.

Wonderful photo of butterflay! Love the pattern of wood too!

Virtually all the benches that are put in our woods, fields etc are make from fallen or cut down trees. We do not cut down trees for this, only for preservation or safety. There is a tiny fly on the bench too which I did not know about until I downloaded the photo! Thank you for your comments Claudia :-)))

Thank you Lynn - some of the photos were blurred but this one wasn't. Luckily. I always check and change my settings if not happy till I think I have got it right. And considering it is only a smallish butterfly and a good few feet away I am pleased with the results!
