Butterflies can be a particular challenge to photograph but this comma was an exception. I took this shot on a cool day in May so the butterfly moved more slowly than it would when the weather is warmer. It remained in this pose long enough for me to take several shots. The natural light was ideal and shows off its iridescent colouring. The season for butterflies is short in Eastern Ontario, so I don’t miss an opportunity to photograph them. I was using my 200mm lens that day; sometimes having a bit more distance between you and your subject works to your advantage.
