I went for a walk in the inner city and met an "old friend". I've been waiting since 2018 to meet it again. Sadly I had neither a macro nor the RF100-400 in my bag, just the RF24-205L
I went to the same place at the same time and met it again but this time with the RF100-400 in my bag.:cool:

Both of these are R5 24-240 @ 130mm f6.3 1/1600 ISO 800

I don't know my butterflies but capturing this one in flight was a trick.

Didn't take shots of butterflies recently. These are first in months.

1/8000s can freeze them! :D
Thanks for that info. Did you try, if something less works?
I can't do it for my own, because we had and have a lot of rain (thankfully!) the last days and this year I saw a hummingbird moth just once.
