Butterflies Up Close

A second visit to Pignal saw me take several macro photos of the abundant butterflies with my MPE-65mm Macro Lens, which gives a magnification of between 1 and 5x.  Most of the images taken of butteflies with it I use between 1 – 2 x, as butterflies are quite large subjects.

The following are a selection of images that I took with this lens on this trip.
