A Butterfly Love Story

Last September, we went on a trip to South Tyrol. Luckily, it was really warm that weekend and we went hiking quite a bit! What a perfect occasion to try out the macro lens I got for my last birthday. While walking around looking for flowers and other stuff to take really detailed pictures off, I found a cute little butterfly on a stone:

I assumed that until I changed my lens and got the settings right, the butterfly would probably be gone already. But I was lucky and it did not care at all about the noise I made taking pictures. Also when I came really close to the butterfly with my lens (about 5cm), it did not fly away:

It appeared as it was just sitting there, enjoying the last rays of sun of the year before winter. That gave me the, probably once in a lifetime, chance to take a REAL close up with my macro lens:

I still can’t believe how lucky I was… This is just incredible, don’t you think?

Have you ever tried macro photography? What sort of pictures did you take?

Thanks a lot for stopping by my blog! If you like my posts, please spread the word! Thanks in advance!!!

  1. The last shot is so perfect! I’ve only borrowed a macro lens once and photographed some candy. Not that interesting results! I think you can take beautiful pictures in nature tough!

    • Thanks Joanna! I love macro photography! I am always fascinated by the details a macro lens is able to capture!!! I am planning on working on my macro skills a lot more this year! I would also love to shoot other insects but so far I have not been lucky to find a similar patient one… :-)
