    Would like to say that they were just 'sew sew' But great work Bobo. You certainly have these ones well stitched up. The fine detail in #1 and #2 is superb.

    Despite the fact that the quality of the humour does not have me in stitches and, indeed, is beginning to needle me, this thread contains very fine images.

    Such cut-ups! LOL! I am enjoying the fabric of this thread and humor very much!

    Nice work Bobo and a great subject to go in even closer if you can!

    Bobo, incredible level of details! Very nice job and nice combination of "shooting and stitching". Thanks for sharing!

    That would mean either

    - a 600mm or 800mm fully filling a part of the wing, or
    - or going right in with the 150mm Sigma macro to the point of almost touching the wing.

    Opted for the latter as I do not have the luxury of the former.

    Of course having hundreds of the friendliest butterflies on the planet did help. Thinking of capturing all the possibilities was the main challenge. The awesomeness of the scene was a big distraction to straight thinking.

    This is how friendly they were. At one point I had one on each hand but my friend could not capture that in time.
