Here are a few from the butterfly house they have there. This garden is located in South Carolina, not Florida.

Very enjoyable compositions. I like them all. You certainly made the da55-300 appear to be a f2.8 lens with those soft backgrounds. Nice work.

Thanks guys. I so want a macro for shots like these. I'm not into bug closeups but would love to get closer to flowers and butterflies.

All are beautiful, Susan - but I'm really taken with 1 and 5. I continue to be impressed with the DA 55-300, especially given it's not he size and weight of an antitank weapon (and the price to match). You certainly know how to put it to good use.
