stalking the butterfly
After an hour of chasing and shooting, I guess this butterfly just gave up, and didn't mind my presence.

Editing OK?: Ask first
Re: stalking the butterfly
I also agree with Tom. No 2 has a great combination of sharp butterfly and lovely bokeh. Really first class - well done!
BTW your comment about the butterfly 'giving up' is a good one. I photograph hundreds of them for my books and have found that nothing beats slow, smooth movements patient stalking. After a while they become habituated to your presence and you can get up close and personal. I've heard many butterfly collector friends say 'no ways will you photograph THAT one!' only to have to eat their words a few hours later... sometimes they sit so still I've been able to get stacks!
All the best
