    This photo was taken with a 500mm Canon lens. The butterfly initially flew over our heads at about 6m height, it then flew away fast, it was photographed at about 40m as it flew away. It was an absolute electric moment, we saw 3 males and 2 females, perhaps one of the best natural history experiences of my life.....Very cool!

    The photo is of the quality really bad .... but I can feel the enthusiasm about the Sitution as this croesus flew over so well, that I alone the emotion that I see in this photo are worth 5 *!

    Sorry if I deprecated the photo qualitatively, but I think that is in this case unimportant ;)

    Please more photos of some like that situations!!!
