Butterfly in Flight

After a desperate try to catch a butterfly in flight, this is what I got!


Butterflies can fly only when the atmospheric temperature is 86 degree F. Once they warm up they just keep fluttering. The speed varies among butterfly species (the poisonous varieties are slower than non-poisonous varieties).
The fastest butterflies (some skippers) can fly at about 30 mile per hour or faster. Slow flying butterflies fly about 5 mph. This one didn’t look the poisonous kind and had good wing speed, camera settings have to be adjusted to get the perfect capture. And it is going to take a while before I can learn that. It is not always you get to see a butterfly fluttering around you.
