Photographing butterflies, bees, other insects and flowers is an easy and creative way to spend the afternoon. This location has a wide variety of flowers planted specifically to attract nectar feeding insects. The setup is great as well because we can work any angle with the flowers and butterflies get a wide variety of background options.

WHAT TO EXPECT: 

  • Lots of variety of butterflies, moths, bees and other nectar feeding insects

  • It will likely be hot and we will be in a mostly open area so if it’s sunny please wear sun protection

PREPARATION: 

  • Dedicated macro lenses or close focusing longer focal lengths are recommended
