Animals / Art / Insects / Light / Photography White Butterfly July 23, 2013 Timothy Price7 Comments I’ve seen a few bigger butterflies pass by, but with everything being so dry and our butterfly bushes only thinking about blooming, they just continue on their way. This little butterfly stuck around tasting out lamb’s ear and Russian sage. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

You are so great at catching shots like this. Does your camera have a fast shutter?
My camera’s fastest shutter speed is 1/8000 of a second, which is slightly slower than the time it takes the driver behind you to honk after the light turns green. The shutter speed I used on the butterfly was only 1/250 of a second so I got a bit of movement in the wings.
That’s great. Do you have an SLR? I am getting a new camera for my bday next month. I considered an SLR but then decided I wasn’t a professional so I couldn’t in good conscious spend that kind of money. I opted for the Fujifilm FinePix S4200 Digital Camera.
I use Canon 1Ds and 5D bodies with Canon L lenses. The bodies have full-frame sensors, which means the sensors are the same size as a 35mm negative.
I forgot. My carry camera is a FujiFilm XPro1 with a 35mm ƒ/1.4 lens. A lot of the photos on my blog are taken with the XPro1, especially the “drive by’s”. The butterfly was taken with a 1Ds body and 70-200mm ƒ/4 lens at 200mm, ƒ/6.3, 1/250 sec.
OH nice. That is helpful know. 🙂
The last 2 photos on my May 10th blog show the cameras and lenses I took to France with me. Big, heavy and bulky, but I never regretted one moment of having nice, weather-sealed equipment as it got totally soaked and sand blasted many times while in France: http://photoofthedayetc.com/2013/05/10/kitties-and-cameras/
