These were taken at the Butterfly House Preston Park with the K-1 and Sigma 180 f3.5. It took a good 15 mins for the gear to acclimatize to the humid conditions, I never quite managed it

Great set of butterfly photos. I'm still waiting to see some butterflies here, but hopefully soon.

I thought the red bits in pic 2 were part of the butterfly for a split second!

It does look that way Gareth, but it's the flower the butterfly is feeding on
