Today I’m focusing on a few tips for spotting butterflies in nature. Because I’m a nature photographer, I find it hard to not (even subconsciously) do a mental check whenever I go out for what kind of wildlife I am likely to encounter. I influences the lenses I will want for a start.
Sometimes I will of course be looking for something specific, and then it is important to have as much knowledge about my subject as possible in order to maximise my chances of success.
Running through my usual mental check the other day made me think how difficult it must be when you first start taking an interest in Butterflies (and other wildlife for that matter) knowing what to think about when planning your trip, so I sat down and put together a simple little checklist to help with this. I hope you find it useful 🙂
