Quite pleased with this, especially after playing with the raw settings as they made it look a lot better. My first trip to Butterfly World in Stratford, and I think I'll be going back.

Hoping this does ok, but know that really I should have had a little more DoF in there for the wings. Kinda hard with even the diffused light.
