My standard butterfly setup D200, 200mm f4 Ais, PN-11 Extension tube, SB-600 speedlight...

Unusual for me, I shot wide open. I was perpendicular to the wings, so I was able to keep most of the butterfly in focus. The result was the first image in months that I didn't have to compress the hell out of it to get it under the file size limit.
