Two beautifully sharp images. I was about to ask whether you are still using the FZ38 but I can see from the data that you are...wow! I'd be interested to know which settings and focus you used for these, eg macro zoom?

Thanks Rob. I use the (FZ38) dedicated close-up lens and adaptor for almost all my butterfly photography. Otherwise I keep it simple. The camera is still on factory settings and I shoot in P mode (idiot mode). I just alter exposure. Everything is hand-held and I never bother with monopods or tripods for butterflies.
BWs, Neil

Thanks, Neil. I've used an FZ38 for a couple of years and have been, for a non-photographer, very pleased with the results. I've recently toyed with the idea of 'upgrading' but to be honest, as your images show, I haven't got the best out of the Lumix yet!
