Insect Photography

Butterfly ojn Geisha Girl Flower

Insects can be quite difficult to photograph due to their size and some special camera equipment may be required to enable close focussing.

Any of the following may be used:

  • Extension tubes
  • Close up lens attachments
  • Macro or micro lenses

For further information on close up photography see our detailed article on macro photography.


Butterflies are great photographic subjects and are commonly found in the garden.
