Default The Butterfly, The Bee & The Near Miss

One day I will get some spot on shots ...... in the meantime I'm having fun practising. This was my first chance this summer to find myself surrounded my butterflys and bees in the botanical gardens - so I gave it a shot All advice welcome.

I think you did a good job, white butterflys are hard to get right.

I really like #1. I can't get a good b/fly shot even with the tripod because they just touch down on the flower for a nano second!

Hi Banksy, thanks for having a look. Yip, they sure are quick - so I was giving handheld a go with the 55-250ml lens on maz zoom most of the time.

I think that day was September 17th

Shot 1 is all you need Dyane, OK it's a common white bfly, but good controlled shot

At least you managed to get the flying bfly and bee in the picture, my last bee attempt ended up with no bee in the picture....
