As I mentioned in my last couple posts, I went for a long walk this past Saturday. One part of that walk was on a nature trail through part of Okinawa's MANY forests. While walking on this nature trail, there were butterflies EVERYWHERE. Time to test the new camera again on its ability to get sharp photos on a difficult subject. Once again it blew me away. One of the lenses I have is a 14-150mm lens. Since with the Micro 4/3rds cameras they have a 2X crop factor it is equivalent to a 28-300mm in standard 35mm measurements. Basically it can zoom way in. Even with so much zoom it is extremely difficult to approach a butterfly/moth and photograph them closeup so all these photos are not only fully zoomed out to the max of 150mm but I cropped them about 30% as well.
Who says butterflies/moths look better after they emerge from the cocoon. This one is pretty ugly.
