Flutterbys, TAv mode.

I was experimenting with TAv mode on the K10D. I have to say it certainly has its uses!

I always see Monarch butterflies whenever I think butterfly. Seeing these are a refreshing change. Beautiful shots!

The subtle colors in number one are exceptional. This one would have been so easy to blow out the highlights. Nicely done indeed.
