Shutter Asia Outing to KL Butterfly Park - July 21st

It was a great trip, everyone turned up and +1 surprise guest (Freaky).

A good time was had by all I think and we got some good pictures, more Dragonfly's than Butterflies though

A satisfying lunch at Kanna then back home in the rain.

Here's the group picture:

Check the Flickr picture http://www.flickr.com/photos/shaolintiger/862768269/ for who is who.

Thanks to everyone who came for supporting Shutter Asia events and hope you all had a good time.

More from me later!

I went to the butterfly park and I shot more spider shots than butterfly shots.

An interesting looking cacoon I found.

New spider to my collection, a male 2 striped telamonia I believe.

Ok here's my shots, went more for Dragonfly's today as they were very still - practising more creative and attractive compositions rather than just trying to get close all the time

I tried to shoot some variety too, butterflys, other insects, flowers and dragonfly's.

Learning to use the Raynox was interesting too, my homemade "botol susu" diffuser certainly proved itself! Very little glare and specular highlights.

You can see the whole set on http://www.flickr.com/photos/shaolintiger/sets/72157600935151947/detail/.

Guys, I can't see all your photos, something wrong with my account?

Anyway, post one flower shot for a start.


Another one.....

Ugly!

Those are superb looking photos. Which lens did you use? Tamron 90mm?
