A new butterfly photography boom has been ignited in the past year by the rise of a new crop of photographers, who are willing to take a risk and shoot butterflies in the wild.
Photojournalist and photographer Daniel McPherson was among those who took part in a recent Butterfly Photography Shootout in the mountains of Arizona.
In the event, McPherson managed to capture a rare specimen of a butterfly, and was able to capture the photos he took of the creatures in the process.
He described the event as an “inspirational experience” and said he was impressed by the butterflies and their unique abilities to survive in the cold, dry Arizona desert.
The photographer has shot hundreds of butterfly photographs in the last year, and hopes to do so more in the future.
“I’ve been shooting butterflies for years and have been using the same techniques,” McPhesons Facebook post reads.
“However, this is the first time I’ve ever been able to do something similar to shoot a single butterfly and I feel so lucky to have done it.”
McPheysons wife, Michelle, who also photographed the event said the event was “the most exciting thing that has ever happened to me”.
The butterfly photographers are currently looking to expand their photography abilities and expand their knowledge of the species.
