Photographing birds in flight with long lenses is hard to do well, but I think I have found something harder... capturing flying butterflies.

It is easy enough to get them enjoying a snack in the Jasmine...

But once they take off, they are out of the depth-of-field for the focus spot you just had...

I still had better luck using single-shot focusing rather than continuous tracking because of the erratic flight, but in general, the little fliers were at least partially out of focus before I could react with a shot.

Our back yard is abuzz with the sights, smells and photo opportunities of spring thanks to Mrs. Easttexasphoto's tireless gardening efforts. Be sure to look around at the emerging springtime and look for the amazing creation awaiting your artistic interpretation!
