Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Butterfly Patterns

This weekend I went up to the Chicago Botanic Garden specifically to see the Butterflies and Blooms exhibit. Needless to say that wasn’t the only thing I ended up photographing but the butterflies provided an ideal topic for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. Thanks for the suggested subject of Patterns, Ann-Christine.

  1. Such gorgeous shots! Beautiful patterns all of them – how do yo manage butterflies to pose for you? When I press the button they are already gone…Thank you for this eye candy!

    • Thank you, Ann-Christine! Even when the butterflies are held captive in a tent or similar structure they’re not the easiest thing to photograph which is why I take dozens and dozens of pictures hoping that at least a few will be good enough to use. Thank goodness for digital photography!

      • These are fantastic – and I agree about the digital cameras…I remember well how few possibilities there were before. And expensive it was.

    • Thanks, Marianne! There’s something magical about having a butterfly land on your shoulder and it was such fun to watch as children and adults enjoy such special moments at the exhibit.
