What's This?

Some subjects in photography are so perfect that they almost photograph themselves. With incredible and diverse colours, butterflies are one such subject. Add a little photographic skill from the photographer and the results can be outstanding. We think this collection of photos of butterflies ranks pretty high on the scale. If you like these, you should also check out the work of Thomas Shahan and see our collection of macro photography tutorials. Enjoy!

    Great photos! Taking this kind of photos take skills and patience, as we all know how the butterflies are “jumping” from flower to flower. You have to be skilled and to have some luck to catch them in one of your photography.

    Excellent work!

    Wow, these are truly stunning. I have plenty of butterflies floating around but never seem to snap a great shot. I think the know when I'm about to hit the shutter button and fly away just to spite me… ; )

    Nice images. But there are a few that are under exposed, out of focus and flat…Take another look and see if you can figure out which ones…

      stephanie – I especially love the shots in black and white. I am a big fan of black and white shots. They allow the ptruiy of the moment to speak for itself and your simple and elegant presentation of these moments exemplifies the pure joy of that moment of love shared between the couple. I can’t wait to see more
