This is a simple shot I took with the Canon 100mm f/2.8 IS USM L Macro lens. This lens give a beautiful blurred background enabling you to put the focus where you need it. I upgraded my macro lens this year from the Sigma 105mm lens. I was in two minds to spend the money as I had been very pleased with the sigma lens, but after reading reviews, and seeing what other people had achieved with the Canon lens, I bit the bullet and bought it....... So glad I did.

Went to a family BBQ this afternoon, and took my camera along, as Amanda has a beautiful garden with lots of interesting plants.
There is a lovely little corner with lots of Lavender plants, and here is where I found the little skipper buzzing around. They are so quick so you have to be fast!
Hope you like the shot. Thanks

This is a picture of a Common Blue butterfly which I took in my garden this morning. I'd actually been gardening and not planned to take any photographs. We normally just have cabbage white butterflies in the garden so I was a little excited when I saw this little fellow. It crossed my mind if he would still be there once I returned with my camera. Luckily it was still there although on another bush in the garden. So I fired off a couple of shots and chased him around for a few minutes. This is the result, I hope you like it.
