Looks like butterflies are pretty popular the last couple days. Here is one shot out of many. Butterflies are not easy to capture (in focus and composed somewhat). Hope you like it.:)

OldNavy170,

Thx. You would not believe how many shots I ahd to "burn" to get very few keepers. Butterflys are not exactly creatures that sit still for long.

My shot pales in comparison to the one you use as your avatar:) As I said to OldNavy170, those little buggers are a challenge to shoot. I used my 70-300 USM / IS to have any hope to "get close".

I can only imagine how hard that would be. I know I go running whenever I see any kind of bug......... :)

Lovely! I agree on color & comp. Love the yellow against the purple. I know I've given up on getting a good butterfly shot.

I like it, like everyone else said the colors are a perfect match. Butterflies are easier first thing in the morning when they're first waking up, they're slower moving. You'll have to take a trip up to Magic Wings when we do it again, you'll be sick of butterfly pictures by the time you're done (well maybe not... :) )

Sounds like a fun trip. I really was amazed at how fast the butterflys move. If you never tried to "hunt" theme, you would not be a believer in the sonic movements of the common buteerfly.
