I took these with 50-250mm Canon lens.  I gave up on macro because the subject get spooked too easily.

No, it wasn't  :)  I was lucky to catch the moment when my wife was showing a butterfly on her hand and in the same time to compose the forground and the background fontain  ;D

I bit too much saturation of color and stuff. Shot with the 100L Macro... I'll try to find the original image. My Cousin went photoshop crazy with my pics... Oh, and it is a moth as well... ;)

To all of you who posted butterflies photos, hats off to all of you.  It is not easy as the butterflies are usually very easily frightened off.
I found one that was not living and I took it home and took a photo of the bright colors of its wings using 3 extension tubes and Canon 100L-f/2.8 IS.

(edit) photo is full size no post or cropping.
