On my Camera Strap
16-AUG-2007 Copyright Elizabeth Bickel

On my Camera Strap

I was on a roll. This was the third butterfly that was attracted to me and/or my camera equipment this day. For some reason, the butterflies kept coming to me.

I layed the body with my 300mm on the ground while I tripod mounted my other camera. However, the next thing I knew, a lovely butterfly was checking out the camera strap of my 20D on the ground.

One never knows when a photo moment will unexpectedly present itself & must be fast to react. So I used the quick release plate, to grab my Sigma 150mm and hand shoot this.

Excellent capture of a blue morphho, Liz. However, these are tropical butterflies. I have no idea why its flying around in your area. Vote
