Small Pearl Bordered Butterflies

Taken mid May at Bentley wood.



Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary – Boloria selene. Taken on Canon 50D with Canon 100mm F2.8 USM Macro Lens. ISO 400 F5.6 1/100 Natural Light.

Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary – Boloria selene. Taken on Canon 50D with Canon 100mm F2.8 USM Macro Lens. ISO 400 F5.6 1/200, Tripod. Natural Light.


Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary – Boloria selene. Taken on Canon 50D with Canon 100mm F2.8 USM Macro Lens. ISO 400 F5.6 1/320, Tripod. Natural Light.

This next shot from the MPE-65mm (at around 1.5 x magnification) is a rare shot for me as it was taken in natural light. The vast majority of shots with this lens are taken with flash.

Re: Small Pearl Bordered Butterflies

Great selection!

You'll be unsurprised that I prefer the natural light ones - but I do think that it's the processing that's made the flash one suffer (too much contrast?)

I'm not - and I prefer the NL too. What do you mean by suffer ? What looks wrong to you ?

Re: Small Pearl Bordered Butterflies

As usual a great set. I prefer the flash picture with the MPE lens to the one with natural light as there is so much more depth of field. Perhaps it is a bit too saturated but that could be corrected of course. Overall though the shots with the 100 mm macro are really good. I am envious.

Re: Small Pearl Bordered Butterflies

Thanks - I'll have to try with the settings on the flash one. I guess adjust the saturation and contrast etc.

Re: Small Pearl Bordered Butterflies

Personally. I love this shot as the brightness really lifts the detail, with no real loss in background colour (Black out!)
