NIKON D70S, Nikon 18-70
This shot was taken in my front yard when we lived in Orlando a few years ago. One of my favorite butterfly shots to date. Monarch’s are the best known butterflies in North America. Even in your yard you can find great pics. I saw this little guy fluttering around outside and grabbed my camera. Luckily he wasn’t shy! Most butterflies will fly away as you get near. He looks like a grizzled veteran, so maybe he was ok with posing due to previous experience? Butterflies are great subjects if you can get them in the right spot. It just take patience. I didnt have my macro lens back then, so I used the standard Nikon kit lens for this shot. Enjoy!
