Caper White Butterfly

Posted by Darren on December 19, 2010

I was lucky enough to catch one photo of this Caper White Butterfly (Belenois java) as it landed on the flower for about 5 seconds.  I must admit that Butterflies are probably one of the hardest insects to shoot as they rarely sit still for very long which makes getting a good composition difficult.  They are also very easily spooked which makes approaching them a challenge as they won’t be waiting around too long!  I’m not 100% happy with the composition as I just cut off the top of one antennae, but I still liked the detail and particularly the colours in this shot.
