2006-06-01 - Monarch Landing

I was beginning to think that these Monarch Butterflies, which I occasionally see around my garden, have camera detecting radars. I just couldn't get within 5m of one. That is, until this one decided to land right by me when I was photographing something else. The lesson? Be patient and be prepared!

Fred I know, I frequently have the same problem! It's fustrating, just as you've framed and focused, it departs... or you don't even get as far as that.

I've always wanted to photgraph a Monarch Butterfly. Their wings have the most georgous patturns on.
Stephen Cameron Don't worry, your chance will come - it's worth the wait :-)
