Monarchs In Flight

A few shots from my day at the Arboretum with Amber last week. I think we spent the most time at this little spot where there were literally hundreds of monarch butterflies (and a few other species). We kept coming back several times that day, to try and catch them in flight. Not easy! Those little guys are fast, and it’s next to impossible to focus on them. I did get a few (out of focus) keepers. The first one is my favorite and it’s actually mostly in focus. All taken with the 80-400mm lens.

Check out Amber’s shot on her blog. She got a really good one!
