Beautiful small copper shot Ian. I've seen it in France also and it is a beautiful butterfly... but small ;-)

I love bugs! Butterflies have dwindled here now, but we were blessed with many this summer. Lovely photo. :)
That is a small Copper and yet oh so lovely!~
Ian, nice beauty!Anna :)
Beautiful butterfly photo.
Nice shot! I struggle with butterfly shots. By the time I get them framed they have moved on. Do you not worry about framing and just do that in post production?
Thanks fror the kind comments.Amber, when shooting butterflies I generally use the center focus point and take a series of shots moving the tip of the lens closer each time. I don't have a macro lens, so it is rare to end up with a shot in which the butterfly fills the frame (I normally hit the minimum focus distance of the lens before this happens), so yes I crop the image to frame it.Many of my butterfly shots are taken with the 400mm lens (with a minimum focus distance of 3.5m) so I am a long way from the butterfly. This helps in not scaring them - but can make getting a good angle hard work.This particular shot was taken with a 24-105mm lens at 105 and the butterfly did not budge at all.
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to comment on my blog!
