Monarch butterfly among flowers. This was taken at a butterfly exhibit, and was a hard shot to get. Because of the number of people moving around the butterflies would not rest in one spot for long.

It was taken my Canon 20D with 17-85mm lens a ISO of 400 f-5,6 shutter speed 1/100

    Sooo pretty, love this capture and the detail is perfect!!!
    I can’t get them to sit still long enough for me!

  • Thank you very much! it’s also tricky to get them with their wings spreed wide, I got lucky on this shot. Thanks also for favoring my work, and adding me to your watch list!
