Just got back from a week in Lincoln, these were taken on a visit to Whisby Nature Park, armed with my K5 and 100mm Macro, no more than 15minutes in and I came across an Emperor sunning itself and sods law the K5 wouldn't fire , turned it off and on again, removed and refitted the lens all to no avail, Fortunately I had the Q with me with the 15-45 attached, so the Emperor was taken with the Q, I then had another play the with K5 and discovered a memory card error, fortunately taking it out and putting it back in again sorted the problem, by this time the Emperor had been scared off by some other walkers No great loss though as the Q did a reasonable job.

Yep - super set - the last one in particular with its vibrancy of colour and lovely multicoloured highlights of the wings make it a standout image

Thanks guys, I should have said these are all jpegs more or less straight out of the camera, just crop, levels and sharpen, the last one is quite a heavy crop as it was higher up in the tree, it's about a fifth of the original frame.

I'm still blown away by the results from the Q (first pic) especially since I was hand holding at full zoom, which I believe is just shy of 250mm on full frame.

Great set! For me the star of the show is the last image
