The Oregon Zoo holds photography workshops, and I went to the one for butterflies recently. This workshop is pretty laid back, with up to 18 other photographers in this session. Using sophisticated dSLR's all the way down to simple point & shoot cameras, the photographers were all hoping to get some great photos of these colorful insects. And because this workshop was set-up by the zoo, we were allowed to "step out of bounds" within the Winged Wonders exhibit to get better angles or views of the butterflies. It was a whole bunch of fun, and a great chance to practice shooting a subject you might not find just anywhere.
