Helios 40 85/1.5: Butterfly landing pad

This is my daughter feeding some butterflies at a local indoor butterfly *zoo* , the Helios 40 is wide open and I am at its minimum focus distance ( I think its 0.55 metres)

 Butthanks to the crop factor the 85mm becomes a 128mm, so I can get in VERY close, one thing the Leica doesnt do so hot ;(

The reason I like this shot is the clarity of the black butterfly contrasts withthe blurriness of the other one landing, and that distance is perhaps an inch or 2 tops, talk about depth of field!

ISO 200  f1.5 1/200th
