I recently had a chance to experience the Overland Park Arboretum and all its glory.  As a result, I bring you a ridiculous number of butterfly photos…

How am I doing?  Any tips or tricks to share when it comes to capturing busy insects?  Do you have a favorite below?

  1. Nice butterfly shots 🙂 I recently photographed a butterfly on a leaf. Didn’t turn out as good as your ones though…

    • Thanks, Tacts! Send me the link to your pic! I visited your site and didn’t see it in the recent posts and couldn’t locate it by searching for “butterfly.”

      • Sorry; should have mentioned I’m yet to publish it yet. Oops! Don’t worry though, I will be posting it as part of Jake’s Sunday Post tomorrow.

      • Gotcha! I’m way behind in visiting blogs, but now I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for it. If you feel like replying when it’s out there, I’d be grateful. Can’t wait to see the shot!

  2. I don’t think you need any tips, these shots are fabulous! I especially love the first and the third ones. Beautiful 🙂

  3. AAHHH you can see it’s tongue really well in the third one! lol! I think they are all pretty cool 😀

  4. Ridiculous?! Never! Never too many butterfly photos 🙂


I love hearing from you!
