Went to the Butterfly Pavilion here in Denver (well, technically maybe Westminster or something) on Saturday. And, of course, took my Nikon D700 and 105mm macro lens to give them a workout.

Could have gotten better pictures, I guess. It could have been brighter (it was cloudy outside, and even though there wouldn't have been direct sunlight inside the greenhouse area, it would have made things brighter), I could maybe have brought my flash (which I really need to learn how to use properly), but all things being equal, some of the pictures turned out passably. Nothing really spectacular, though, the really tight depth-of-field for the wide open-lens made for lots of blurry wings and such, and even wide-open the exposure times were still too long for hand-held. Maybe I'll go up again before I leave and try again.

I give you some sort of unidentified butterfly:

Click through for the set, as always.
