Today’s Captures – Butterfly

Capturing a butterfly that is constantly moving from flower to flower can be challenging . It is also fun and gratifying nevertheless clicking these delicate beauties as they approach the pretty flowers . Here are a few candid shots that I took . Some of the tips and tricks I learnt while capturing butterflies , is to be still and wait with the camera ready to shoot at one place where the butterfly may most likely perch. Butterflies are rather sensitive and if you  keep chasing them with the camera, you can pretty much end up scaring them away. A lens with faster shutter speed to freeze motion in combination with increased ISO can also be used for capture .If you have any other interesting tips capturing butterflies that are worth sharing, I would love to hear , please do so in the comments below. Have a great day!


Capturing butterflies needs patience and it is indeed very gratifying.

      Yes Christy , luckily it did perch for a while and I had to be quick .With the slightest movement it would fly off 🙂 Thank you so much for the appreciation!
