On too close for comfort in the Butter flies challenge (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

christian jacob: Thank you!
I shot it at a zoo (http://www.zookrefeld.de/faq.html -- I noted that in my gallery, but somehow can't change it to public at the moment), so I guess it was just de-sensitized (there were hundreds of butterflies, and most of them were not shy, seems to be depending on the species).
Most of them didn't even notice the flash, only a big, blue one did.
And, as this is a 1360×1700 crop of a 16mp photo, I wasn't quite that close as it seems to be.
And for comfortable -- I think I tried for nearly 10 minutes to get as close as possible to this one (it felt longer), got cramps in my back and thought I was losing my eyesight (it was rather dark, and I had to manual focus -- more guess work and many tries). And the climate was tropical, while I was dressed for a german autumn...

Yep, thanks very much from me too!

Ditto! I don't like my 2.8 because it is fixed and doesn't zoom. This means I have to be on top of the creature. How did you manage to get so close without scaring it?

Wow - I can only assume the water is thermal for his hair to be that frozen and yet he is still smiling. Congrat's on your win. Jen
