I have GOT to get one of those!! The 6t I mean.. If it's still as chilly in Ontario as it is here in Michigan, where were these taken?? I wouldn't think these creatures could survive the relentless cold weather. Great shots btw.. The last one kind of reminds me of a US Stealth fighter jet.

Like your #3 best! Interesting composition!



BTW how do you approach them w/o them flying off?

Thanks Jeff, It's as cold here as it is there in Michigan, I was at the Niagra Falls Butterfly Conservatory, 1000's of Butterflies and lots of great picture taking opportunities. I usually go 2 or 3 times a year as it is only a 2 hour drive from me.

Hi tchuanye, I was using a Nikon 6T and was about 12 inches away, approching is fairly easy as these butterflies see humans all thier life, and they don't seem too scared.
