Taken on a walk through Geilston Gardens near my home, I think this was the first time I had tried the macro setting on the Panasonic, not my usual subject or one that I know much about,

It's worked out well, in that case. The flowers may be a little too-dominating perhaps but I like the way their colours are picked up in the "eye" markings on the wings of the butterfly. Nicely done, Peter. No doubt George will tell us the breed of the butterfly.

A cracking shot of the iconic Peacock butterfly. Pin-sharp all over the 'fly and with lovely detail overall. This species seems to prefer blue/lilac coloured blooms and digi sensors seem to enhance them but for me it's all part of the context of the shot so I don't really mind them. Well done Peter.

A good sharp capture showing some good details & colours on the butterfly. Well taken.

Iconic it is and maybe leaving the peacock lower in your frame thereby leaving space for it to move into so to speak will enhance your composition no end.
Pity the butterflies now seem to have left us until the Buddleas return to flower in 2014.

A smashing study of a Peacock Butterfly Jeffrey, pin sharp indeed with loads of detail and almost 3D against the colourful background.
Excellent work Sir, the macro setting working, like you, to perfection.

Sorry Peter late with comment, and perhaps worse George has given me credit for the photo.
But seriously it's pretty good really, macro never seems to be easy as DOF can be tight. But good lighting always helps, and keeping the f number as high as possible, well done anyway.

All been said Peter, but I must echo the comments about the sharpness and wonderful detail captured in this beautiful native butterfly, very well done Sir!!!.

Sorry I'm late Peter.. Agree with everyone - It's a cracker of an image and I love those flowers and the bright wings against them. I think bugs and possibly birds are attracted to yellow and bees and butterflies love blue and purple flowers?
