Agreed on 1, and the white butterfly - such a delicate, well-composed image!

All good shots. But top of the list for me is No. 3 (bee on flower) . The composition is spot on and the colours shout 'summer' (which I would like a bit of at the moment, having travelled from the sunny south to N. Wales today and it's now raining ).

Thanks for the comments, I nearly sold the Sigma a while ago .. glad I kept it in the end.

Exactly the same situation I had with my Pentax A*200 macro - and from this selection there's little doubt you made the right decision

Agree with the opening image being a great image but the last one! They're tricky to shoot when in flight as they're so fast!
