A butterfly taken at the Cockrell Butterfly Center, Houston, Texas, USA. First photo posted with my new M.Zuiko ED 60mm 2.8 Macro. So far I am pretty impressed with this lens, the light weight and small size allows me to take photos I would not have been able to with a different macro lens. This photo was taken using the back display with the camera held out at arms length because the butterfly was over a ledge.

Enjoying this image. Works for me and title fitting. Focusing and shallow depth to good use
