Photograph taken at the Cockrell Butterfly Center in the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Texas, USA.

Not sure how this is going to do in the challenge. This is probably my favorite image taken with this lens so far. I had the butterfly perfectly parallel to the sensor and nailed the very shallow DoF from this large aperture (f0.95). The lens is a soft wide-open but I love the look from this lens when shot wide-open. It's a huge contrast from what I expect out of my wildlife images with either my 150/2 or 300/4, which both of them are razor sharp wide-open.
