Bern I see that the butterflies in this place, are abundant and you photographs them so beautifully! I almost do not obtain to photograph them. When I approach them, they always fly and I get frustrated ...

Hello, Lana! Mostly all of my butterfly pictures were taken inside a butterfly house on the Island Mainau. Maybe they are not as shy as outside, but one can help using sweet parfume and wearing light yellow/blue clothes. Even salty sweet invites them to suck some mineals ...

At least be aware of your own shadow not to cover them, otherwise butterflies may be afraid of that 'virtual preditor bird'


Best wishes to Brazil, bernd

Hi Bernd, thank you for the tips! I will follow your advice and maybe I am luckier to photograph the butterflies!

Friendly greetings to you! Lana

You're welcome, Lana! I hope, we will soon see your success ...

All the best, Bernd
