Butterfly pics

springa7(z5 MA)September 5, 2005

Here's a couple of pictures that I got of a monarch butterfly (at least I think that it's a monarch) a couple of days ago. They're not nearly as good as some of the other butterfly pictures that I've seen posted here, but I am using an older camera and I can never seem to get too close without having the butterfly take off and fly away.

Very pretty! They're so much fun to watch.

I've taken dozens of pictures of butterflies and only gotten one or two so-so ones...they just won't hold still.

Here's one that visited my garden earlier this afternoon. I ususally have 3-4 flitting around the yard several times every day.

I'm using the closeup setting on my camera and sneaking up on them very - very - very - slowly.

This was the best of about a dozen shots. There's a thumbnail offsite - it's a pretty big file.
