Butterflies and other insects

It’s been a hot day here today and I’ve been out with my macro lens trying to get some interesting insect pictures.

Although it is hot, almost as soon as I got to Priors wood (where I usually go to get insect pictures) the sun went in and the light levels dropped quite a lot. Although that didn’t make it in anyway impossible to take pictures, it meant about 3 stops less light, so most of these were taken at a higher ISO or with less depth of field than I would have ideally liked. You can view the full sized pictures here.

All of these pictures have been processed in Lightroom using my normal post processing techniques.
