Explanation of how the 100-400mm lens was useful at the Butterfly Farm

I have found in the past that although the macro is fantastic for getting very good butterfly images on the occasions that I have had the 100-400mm lens with me it also takes a very good image. Partly as it is a good lens anyway but for those butterflies which are too far away for the reach of the macro (and there are plenty of places for the butterflies to go!) it was the only way that I could reach them! Some of the images were taken hand held with IS on and some on the tripod with IS switched off.

Usefulness of off camera flash

I also had the opportunity of comparing the camera flash with a remote camera flash. I have to say the difference was amazing. The remote flash could be held exactly where it was required and as it was also more powerful it produced a much better lit subject.
