I enjoyed a modest butterfly outdoor enclosure in Frankfort, KY. Here is the start of the photos I kept from it.
All with R5 + RF 100-500L lens.
Butterfly names from Seek app.

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail:

This fellow scampered along the leaf into my view.
He's so little that I just had to name him "JUMBO!"
(Putnam's Jumping Spider)

He quickly scampered to the tip of the leaf, and hid himself away underneath it.
(you can see the spider-silk trailing behind him)

Very nice John! When the birds aren't around, then the beauty of insects becomes apparent.

Thanks, AlanF. It's such a pleasure to have the RF 100-500L, which in one lens does such a good job with distant birds, close butterflies, kitties, and so many other things.

A series of a silver Y moth (autographa gamma), in German a Gammaeule.
Both names are in relation to the bright silvery mark on each of its forewings.
While the English name sees a Y in its shape, the scientific and the German name are in relation of the greek letter "gamma".

This weekend I started shooting medium sized jpgs along with the usual RAW on my R5. Why? Because it's the best I could think of to simulate a 24mp FF camera. I realize it's downsampled from a much higher resolution and it's therefore not a perfect comparison, but hey this isn't critical science I'm doing. I also am going through some of my old 5D3 images, also not perfect comparison but again gives me an idea of what I can expect with 24mp. So here are some of the results from my walk yesterday. These aren't actually cropped very much at all TBH, I'll post some of the more extreme samples in the BIF thread. All are with R5 + 100-500 + 1.4x.
