finally get back the scanned photo.
Here are some better ones to share:









all photos are take by 135/2L on EOS-30, some are with the 25mm tube attached.
film is Fuji superia 100 and 200.
Some photos are actually taken last Dec at the ZOO. (remember that raining day?)

you can also see them at:

Due to webspace constrain they might be deleted after 2 weeks.

The shots are nice and colorful


The white with black spot butterfly shots look like from the Zoo ... and the dragonfly is out of focus at the 2nd shot ...

Are those butterflies form the zoo? I don't think u can find them so easily in the botanical gardens.

U are right regarding the the butterfly from Zoo.
Yes the 2nd shot is out of focus.
But it will be more accurate to say that I have not stopped down enough and thus the DoF is to narrow.
If I have selected the focus pt to be a bit nearer than at least the centre body of the butterfly will be sharply focused.
Still need to practice more.

Do u all found that the wing of the yellow butterfly is damaged?
I only found immidiately after the pic was taken.
I doubt it will survive, feeling sorry about it.

I've said in my first post, the cam I'm using is Canon EOS 30, lens is EF 135 f/2L, 25mm extension tube is used for closer focusing distance.
135mm on 35mm format means the ratio of
(horizontal object size):(object distance) = 1:4
(actually a bit simplified and not very accurate for macro)
by guessing the size of objects in the pic u can work back to get the object distance.
For those butterfly shots they are mostly taken at around 1/2 - 1 metre.

If my pic look different from others it is most likely because of the shorter DoF of 35mm format cause better background blur compared to consumer class DCs which have CCDs that are much smaller in size.
