blue butterfly - approach

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

it was early enough in the morning to search for one of this species sitting deep down in the grass. I knew from one of my earlier inspections that I would find them here.

Yet it was a challenge for this my first attempt.

Canon 5D MKII with Elmarit R 60 mm macro+2xconverter,flash mounted on a tripod and handheld reflector. The camera was dismounted from the tripod in favour of being free to kneel and with the reflector under my ellbow I tried to approach very carefully. It was rather dark deep down in the grass, so to bring in thee some light was neccessary. Next time I know better how to manage.

thanks for looking closely. The last one was when I was bold enough to go nearer. I am thinking about getting this famous R-lens Elmarit 100 mm Apo macro. And these butterflies are only half the size of a thumbnail.
