This clouded sulphur butterfly was one of many flying madly around on what was then a rare warm day. I suspect it ran out of energy. I took this with a 105 Macro lens from a distance and had to do an extensive crop (not an issue with a 24 megapixel camera). In fact any telephoto lens would have worked. Most of what is called Macro is in fact close-up photography and I do not want to pretend otherwise. Focused on the butterfly I could not do a great deal about the background and was happy enough to get some color even if the flowers were soft. Not the easiest thing to shoot but certainly not the hardest.
