Sharpenhoe Butterflies

Another Hitchin Camera Club summer meeting saw us heading off to Sharpenhoe Clappers in the Chiltern Hills to do some ‘butterfly hunting’.

I used my 100mm Macro lens and set the camera to underexpose by two stops to darken the background but then used the camera’s pop-up flash to light up the subjects.  I believe the butterflies were all Chalk Hill Blues.
