There’s something super enchanting about butterflies, let alone giant butterflies. Such pretty and delicate little creatures. These butterflies in particular are not that of wild ones that you’ll see in your garden. These butterflies in-fact come from a local wildlife park’s butterfly house.
These pictures were taken on a Canon 6D with a 50mm 1.4 lens.
My favourite photograph from this mini series is definetly the first one shown. The butterfly was surrounded by a very busy environment and due to having such a shallow depth of field, with a little bit of manual focusing I was able to get the butterfly sharp and in focus and blur out the distracting and busy foreground.
There’s still a lot of room for improvement in the rest of the images, and the improvements could have very easily been done in post processing, what do you think? Let me know in the comment’s below.
I am looking forward to going back at some point to take some fresh, up to date photographs of the giant butterflies as these images were taken back in 2018, hence why they weren’t re-edited for uploading because I stupidly, carelessly if you like lost the RAW files. It will also be interesting to see if my Sony a7ii lives up to the likes of my beloved Canon 6D and whether or not I’ll be looking to go back to Canon.
