Starting with a basic discussion of butterfly anatomy, this book delves into the details of their habits and habitats, including where and how they live and where and when to look for specific breeds, in order to help photographers find butterflies and lure them in front of the camera. An equally thorough discussion of technique—including using auto or manual focus, exposure compensation, picking a lens, using multipliers, extension rings, filter, and flash, coping with movement, and controlling the background and light—covers everything essential to taking a great shot.
