Parsonage Moor BBOWT NR, Oxfordshire, August

This one with the D3S, and the 300mm with a tube – setup for dragonflies.  Ended up shooting far more butterflies than dragons then!

ISO 1000 1/640 f/8 handheld

 

All these go to show that with the right equipment – whether with flash or not – handheld butterfly shots are possible!
