I thought the best way to break in the new gear would be to shoot one of my favorite subjects: butterflies. So, that's just what I did, and the camera performed flawlessly. I was able to capture several species that I hadn't seen before. Feast your eyes on these beauties, and remember that you can see these and many others in my Butterflies Gallery.
In the coming weeks, I have a Boundary Waters trip planned, among other things, so I should have more photos to display. Until then, take care.
