I now have two Ulysees butterflies flying around my studio. I have lots of flowers everywhere for them to drink from and they seem to be happy gliding around. I have a huge space for them to cruise around in and I am really enjoying photographing them.
I have often looked at butterflies and wondered how on earth they survive hungry birds everyday. But after chasing these butterflies with my camera, I have a new found appreciation for just how unpredictable their flight pattern can be!
Photographing my bugjects this way is proving to be incredibly free-form. Usually I set-up and plan my shot to the most infinite of details.
