Good depth of field on both the plants and the butterfly. How close were you when you made these?

Very nice Scott. Were you using a macro lens to take these?

I meant to ask which one you were using?

I was using a Lester A Dine 105mm F2.8 manual focus macro lens on a Nikon D70s for the shot (lens circa 1985)...I believe I also used an SB 600 for some fill light, I was about 6-8" away from the butterfly...
