Butterflies: nature's flamboyant flying insect

in photography •  7 months ago

Here are shots I was able to capture of a couple of butterflies this afternoon. The first set of shots are of one butterfly right as the afternoon storms dissipated.

All shots were taken using a Canon 80D camera with a 70 - 300mm lens.

The last shot is of another butterfly just as the sun hid itself behind the clouds. In Florida, it can go from bright and sunny to cloudy and rainy in minutes. Luckily, the cloudiness made for a beautiful shot of this one.

The contrast between the butterfly in the first couple of pictures with the plant that it was sitting on is awesome. I like the white/orange against the red/purple.
