Butterfly – Melbourne Zoo

There is something special about the butterfly house at the Melbourne Zoo, aside from the incredible humidity and the crowds the enclosure draws the butterflies represent something magical. I spend a good hour or so in the butterfly house just watching these incredible creatures flutter around without a worry in the world and it was well worth the time spend there.

Since I captured so many images I have broken this visit up into two (2) separate posts so keep an eye out for the next post which contains more images. I would well recommend a visit to the Melbourne Zoo. I was lucky enough to be gifted a Zoo Victoria membership which allows for unlimited entry into all three Victorian Zoo’s (Melbourne, Werribee and Healsville Sanctuary) so you will no doubt see many more images from me.

Equipment Used:

As with all of my images, I use Nikon gear. This is not because I think Nikon is better than Canon but just because it is what I got started with and wanted to maintain lens compatibility. The images were captured and edited with the following gear;

  • Nikon D610 DSLR
  • 150.0 mm f/2.8,
  • Adobe Lightroom CC
