[QUOTE="mike fee"]\nYes - much easier with ants, caterpillars, and assorted bugs than with\nbutterflies. Th elatter just seem to know when you ar eabout to take a\nshot and will wait patiently till you get them _almost_ in\nframe/focus/position before deciding to flutter to the next bush.\n\nMike[/QUOTE]\n\nI know. I try and second guess them. The same with bees, you can kind of\ntell how long they will stay in one place before moving to another. I'm\nalways trying to get a clear picture of a bee (like honeybee) in flight. I\nend up taking rapid sequence pictures of things that move around a lot. If\nI'd thought about it more, I'd have cropped the butterfly pictures closer\nbefore posting them here. I sometimes put affirmations and sayings on\npictures like that, and use them on my desktop (or print notecards) so I\nlike a pretty color, slightly blurred background.\nDidn't realize there was a right and wrong way of taking/cropping butterfly\npictures I'd get lectured about.
