This one would never land. Tried following around with the FX01.

Thought he would settle here, but flew off again.

Another nice capture Jerry. Are you using the FX01 more now and how does it do inside, low light?

Don

Pretty good captures, especially considering the subject.
That's a Giant Swallowtail I believe. They flit around my citrus trees all the time, but they never light on a branch. I'm not really sure what they're doing, but I suspect they're laying eggs since their caterpillars are all over my trees, too.

You did much better than I have in my attempts to photograph them.
Good show, Jerry!

Don, in response to your post, I hastily snapped this with no flash, just the room lamps.

Beautiful butterfly...I have never seen a brown one! I don't know how you managed to catch it mid-flight. Donna

Thanks Donna. This was with the FX01 and I was just lucky, held the FX01 arms length and just kept snapping.

Redstickman, same here. That is an naval orange tree that he flying around. Several times I thought he would land, but never did. Just get close. Then he would move and fly around the other two citrus trees.

Thanks for viewing and commenting.

Jerry

Hi Bayourebel!

Boy, what a chase-I can very well imagine you trying to get the critter! Even if the pics are not the sharpest that Ive seen from you, "The Chase" is captured very impressingly. As beautifull as Butterflies are, they can be mightily annoying as a aubject!

Keep on shooting, eventually it has to land ;-)


Cheers,
RealMash
