p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Monarch Butterflies


Knowing that it's Monarch migration here in New York City I headed to the Lido Beach Preserve on Long Island to enjoy there passing through. It became windy just as I was arriving which made it difficult as my subjects were being moved around. I still manage some photos worth sharing.

My butterfly setup is an old Nikon 180mm f2.8 on a D500 with SB-800. I like to set the flash at 45 degrees and use the built in bounce card yet on this day I found direct balanced flash worked better. Some of these are done each way.

Morris: Nice work on the bflies. Watch out for the vignetting on 1, 3, 4 and 6. #8 would be my pick of the series.

Thank you Ted,
I'm not seeing dark corners in any of them and that would be odd as this is a full frame lens on a crop body. I agree on 8 being one of the best

Thank you Kim,
6 has the best overall sharpness on the butterfly of any. The background is a bit busier than I'd like
