I cannot photograph butterflies in flight. I usually get nothing but blur. I did not do it in this photo, but I really like how the butterfly in flight in the background adds movement to the image. Again, I like the bokeh in the background.
Camera settings: Nikon D800 on a tripod, 80-400mm f/4.5~5.6 lens with an extension ring attached at 300mm, ISO 1600, f/13 at 1/45th of a second and a Nikon SB800 on the hotshoe.
Lightroom 5—applied Nikon vivid preset, set white and black points, added vibrance and clarity.
