Q: Best All Around Canon Lens

A: Do you know?

I captured this buckeye butterfly while my lens was stilled fogged up from being inside by the air conditioner. I thought it made a nice effect anyway.
Thanks to Judy Wanamaker for the correct name!

    Beautiful! It looks so pretty perched on the lavendar flower. Excellent capture. I would not have noticed the slight filmy look, but it softens the shot beautifully.

    Excellent shot!!! The buckeye butterfly is beautiful!!! When my lens is foggy from going outside from the AC and into the humidity, it is solid white at first.
