9 Comments on “Gatekeeper Butterfly.

    • Thank you, Inga. Since I use a 60 mm macro lens, I get really close to a butterfly; so close, sometimes, that I could reach out and touch it.

      I use a few techniques to help me get close to the butterfly. The main ones are:

      1. I approach the butterfly with the camera held to my eye.

      2. I hum quietly in a low monotone, I think they feel the vibrations in the air. Silly as it might seem, it works for me.

      3. I make sure that the butterfly doesn’t see my shadow.
