A great close-up image of this beautiful Comma Butterfly. You could not have asked for more detail and the colors are true and natural.
I haven't seen any yet this year, but I'm sure they are already out and about somewhere here in Ohio.
Congratulations the 250th post.It's plesant to see you on TN . I like your photos and to read your notes. This species look quite modest but have interesting shape of the wing. If you have time, have a look at my website and there you will find the most common butterflies.Here link Site of nature

Congratulations on your 250th posting. A beautiful photo in honour of it. It's a pleasure to look at this wonderful composition. It is the simplicity that makes this picture so special! The lack of distracting objects and the almost plain background make the Polygonia c-album butterfly stand out from the surroundings. A really outstanding shot. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

this is a fine close-up picture of the Comma, a nice picture to celebrate your 250th post.
The comma is a bit pale so I think it's a wintering one, later in the summer the will be more beautiful.
Well composed with very fine sharpness and details, the insect stand out well from the BG too.
Well done, my friend.
About your question:
Sorry about the late replay, all butterflies and dragonflies keeps me busy:-)
I had no issues with the autofocus in A55, the autofocus was quick and precise maybe not as the A77,
but quick enough for birds in the fly.
No I have not use the tripod yet for the 300mm, we have good daylight now and I can use 1600 ISO without no problem.

You're right: TN is not a racing (and not a photo dumping site, I must add), but the key point is you're with us again. First of all congratulations for your 250th post, you celebrate it with a fantastic photo of a c-album. Exceptional composition, lights, colors, sharpness, DoF - everything's so pretty here maybe except for the butterfly, he seems a bit too old. :-) Seriously, a bombastic photo, the best choice to celebrate. Bravo!
Best regards, László
