I finally admitted to myself that the E-510 has a problem in the Mode Selector.  I can no longer set a fixed shutter speed. Program Mode still works, but that is not quick enough to capture flapping wings.  So, today I paired up the E-1 and the ZD 50-200. As long as I don't crop too much, this works ok.  The replacement suggested by Moose is on its way.

This beautiful black butterfly was working the Buddleia but its wings never stopped fluttering.  With shutter speed set at 1/1000,  I followed it all about the bush.  This is my best shot.


Online research leads me to believe it is a Pipevine Swallowtail, which has that blue cast to the body and hind wing.
