Key West Butterfly Garden

One of the places we visited in Key West was the Butterfly Garden. This seemed like a good one - tons of butterflies in a nice setting. I took a couple of hundred photographs to get these ones. It's always a challenge because they don't sit still for long.


Most of these I took multiple shots in order to get one where the butterfly cooperated and it was in focus. I only took one shot of this silhouette and then I decided it probably wouldn't turn out so I didn't take any more. It ended up one of my favorites. (The "frame" wasn't added afterwards, it was a part of the windows in the background.)


Sometimes half the battle is getting a plain background.


See all 16 photos as a slideshow or overview.
