An in-depth look at butterflies and how to best capture them on film, this fascinating handbook is equal parts field guide and photography handbook. A complete overview of the winged creatures’ ecological system is provided, which details everything from species identification and the habits and habitats of North American butterflies to differentiating moths from butterflies and learning where and when it is best to find these beautiful insects. Armed with a solid understanding of butterfly biology, photographers can then comfortably explore the technological aspects of nature photography. Composition, white balance, focus, and exposure advice is combined with invaluable tips on using a flash and digital manipulation.
