Nice butterfly!

This picture was taken in early June. I love butterflies but they are not easy to photograph. Unless they are seen early in the morning when they seem sleepy, later on in the day they flutter here and there. In this case the butterfly decided to land near flowers and stayed there for a while, giving me a chance to get to it. I still had to hand hold the camera as I could get closer to it. Still had to shoot at a high speed to ensure a maximum of accuracy. I Think that it came out just about right.

Canon T2i, Sigma macro lens 150mm, iso 800, f/22. 1/200 sec. Hand-held.




  1. wow nice pic!

  2. Wow, so close! I love the fuzz of the body. Wonderful image. That blue reflecting off the wing is brilliant as well.

    • Thank-you for your comments.
