Sometimes, the birds are hesitant to take to the air over Bued River. So I try to capture any other creature that flies.
I wish though that I got this one earlier in its life cycle, when its "plumage" was more pristine and photogenic.

Whaaaatttt? This takes the cake, hahaha. It's still a BIF (Butterfly-in-flight), but WOW! Those critters are so hard to track; believe me I've tried. Easy to shoot when near flowers or vegetation, but flying in free air? Bow, bow, bow! :-)
For all it's worth, here's mine:
D500/Nikon 200-500; ƒ/5.6 @500.0 mm; 1/2000; ISO 898; Hand-held:
Yours is an amazing shot! Excellent detail even in the shadows and very pleasing bokeh.
Thanks Ka Mastah. It was real easy to shoot the butterfly coz it was flitting slowly amongst the flowers. Your shot shows the skill in BIF one can only acquire from years of experience and practice :-)
