Butterflies are fun. They seem to stick around animal turds if you find any.

I see that the ISO was 500 on all the photos, was there any reason for that, or was the ISO just set to 500?

Lol Thuja, I think I'll wait until they're perched on flowers.

Regarding 500 ISO, I chose that, I was on manual and not auto ISO. I think because it was later in the day, around 4pm. There was still plenty of daylight but after experimenting with different settings, that seemed to work. Interestingly, I've since watched this video, and the guy suggests that 400 ISO is good to use even just around mid morning to mid afternoon. Watch it from 5:26 up till 7.11.
