   BUTTERFLY CAPTURING GEAR -  NIKON CAMERAS


We are passionate about photographing butterflies.  We will move heaven and earth to get a great photograph of these flying palettes of color.  We take our camera gear with us wherever we travel, and we always have our butterfly radar turned on and scanning for stunningly beautiful butterflies.

We don't use tripods or monopods.  Everything is shot handheld, and the vibration reduction Nikon lenses are a great help.  Since we are shooting digital, we can afford to take lots of pictures in the hope that a few of them turn out.

Donna sometimes uses a flash with her photos, and I never use a flash with my telephoto.  The vast majority of our photos are taken with natural light.

We have only two camera bodies and three lenses.  That's all the camera gear that we want to carry around, and this combination of lenses lets us photograph almost anything that catches our interest.  As we do more landscape photography, I'm sure that a tripod will soon appear.

We are not professional photographers, although our photographs are improving over time.  We have never sold a photograph, and we never intend to sell any.  That would make what we do into work rather than fun.
