The Impossible Project

Under en liten skogtur idag ble jeg overrasket av et par sommerfugler, den ene grønnhvit og den andre mer gulhvit, som var ekstremt opptatt av hverandre. Jeg må innrømme at jeg ikke helt klarte å se om dette var en romantisk paringsdans eller om det var et mer vanlig ‘gateslagsmål’ 🙂 , men uansett fikk jeg brynt meg litt:
Er det f.eks. mulig å fotografere sommerfugler i flukt? Jeg tror jeg t0k 25-30 bilder, men med et vidvinkelobjektiv på kameraet så var det lett å finne dem i søkeren, men verre å få noe produktivt ut av bildene.
Ikke på noe tidspunkt landet disse krabatene på kvist eller bakke (selv om det kan se slik ut), men her er et lite utvalg . . .
NB! Her på det første bildet kan det se ut som det bare er èn sommerfugl, men ser man godt etter, så finner man den andre på undersiden av grankvisten!
Klikk til  ‘full-format’ anbefales!
During a small trip into the woods today, I was surprised by a couple of butterflies, one greenish white and the other ‘yellow white’, which were extremely attached to each other.
I have to admit that I could not see whether this was some kind of ‘romantic wedding dance’ or if it were more of a treet fight’, but nevertheless it became a bit of a challenge to me: Would  it be possible to shoot butterflies in flight?
I think I must have shot 25-30 frames, but with a wide screen lense it was easy to find the butterflies through the lense, but much harder to catch something that I could use?

Not at any  time were  these two expert flyers landing on the ground nor a twig or flower, even if might look like they did! All ther time shifting positions, directions or height!
But here is a small selection!

On this first picture it might seem like it’s only one, but if you look closely you’ll find that the yellow one is underneath the spruce twig.
Clicking the pictures into ‘full screen’ is recommended!

Så ‘ja’, det er faktisk mulig å skyte sommerfugler i flukt, men man bør kanskje ha et moderate tele-objektiv f.eks. 100/150 mm, en ISO rundt 1600 for om mulig sikre en lukkerhastighet rundt 1/1500-2000 sek. og en brikke med relativt høy oppløsning.

So ‘yes’, its actually possible to shoot butterflies in flight, but perhaps I’d recommend a medium telescope lense like 100/150 mm, an ISO in the range of 1600 that will enable you to shoot with shutter speeds around 1/1500-2000 sec and a high solution memory card!

    Well, One can’t expect everything. You know, these butterflies stand very small due to the fact that I was using a wide angle lense, but without one, I don’t think I would have caught therm at it! 🙂

  2. Excellent photo’s Svein.. and I am very surprised no one commented upon the skill of your camera shots on these.. Beautiful shots of butterflies
