Painted Lady Butterfly

I have started trying for in flight butterfly shots this season. I got this yesterday morning.

Canon 7D2, 70-200mm f2.8 IS II, 1.4x TC II
ISO 400, f5.6, 1/4000s, hand held

Any comments appreciated.

A great in flight shot, Allen. I love that the flower is included. The details in the BF are really great. The background just makes him and the flower pop. Excellent image, and I think the square format works well here. :+1::+1:

“Houston, we have lift off.” The bf looks like it was spring loaded, Allen. A fine action catch. Looks like you’ve got a number of fresh young butterflies.

Allen: Really well done. Terrific plane of focus management especially. I’m OK with the square format but my first impression was to crop some from the left and I think I still would. :+1::+1:>=))>
