Weekly Photography Assignment: Butterflies
Each week we’ll be giving you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our favourite to be featured on the Nature TTL website. Participating in these assignments will be a great way for you to force yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.
Week 133: Butterflies
Our theme this week is Butterflies. Butterflies make wonderful photography subjects, but they can be a challenge to get close to! This week we want to see what photos you can get of these stunning insects. Good luck!
Here are some tutorials to help you:
- How to Photograph Butterflies & Insects

- How to Get Close to a Macro Subject

Last Week’s Favourite
Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Mammals. You can view all of the entries here.
This week’s winning photo is by Maurorau. We really like the framing of this image, with the depth of field allowing just enough detail in the surrounding environment without distracting from the main subjects. The timing of the shutter is spot on to capture the expression of both the mother and her cub. Well done!
