It's nothing really special but I found this Tortoiseshell Butterfly on our Buddleia bush today and only had my bridge camera handy. Given the fact that I had the camera set on Auto Mode and no "close up attachment" fitted I thought it was quite good quality and fairly well focussed.
Any comments guys?

Edat: I should have added that the camera is just a Canon SX50!

It works well Pete.

Only CC I can add, (and I ought to take my own advice!) sometimes better to give the subject a bit more space, ie not zoomed in so close. That will show the little beast in its environment....:)

The best camera is the one you have with you. Nice shot.

Nice one Pete, as you may know I also have the SX50, it's a great bridge camera.

Yes, it tends to be my "Go to camera" for when I go out for a walk with my dog. I bought it pre-owned and it's one of the best buys I ever made!
