Default butterflies and dragons

Same walk today minus the spiders.

This one turned out spectacular. I was off the boardwalk and could move around.



These are from the boardwalk.











Thanks for joining me in my walk.
Cheers

Thanks for the comments. I personally like the first and last but the others have their merit.
I just thought I would share my walk in the park.

I have a new appreciation for bugs and the people that get the shots. Bugs don't stay still and I look like something out of Monty Python running around and turning around just to try to get a shot.

Honestly if you saw me in a video trying to get these shots you would laughing hysterically. Hmmmm getting ideas!

Great shots! I managed to capture a butterfly today, but I wasn't close enough. After cropping and blowing up, it lost too much detail. How close are you to your subjects?
