An orgy of butterflies


Recommended Posts

out and about a bit a couple of weekends ago and spent some time chasing butterflies.  Unfortunately I'd left the extension tubes in the car so was just shooting with the  Fuji 70-300, but then even if the lens had focused closer, I wasn't able to get much closer to the butterflies without them fluttering off.

And if you are working in a butterfly environment, this may be NSFW!  🫣   I got a little bit closer to these as they were a bit distracted

All shot Fuji X-E3 and 70-300.  The 70-300 has a pretty good minimum focus distance on it's own, but also works well with extension tubes - I have the 16mm one - for even closer focus, not quite macro range but useful for a bit of bug hunting.
