How does Jeff do it?

Approaching a butterfly and coming within two feet of it requires a combination of techniques.  The rewards for doing it successfully are 1) full enjoyment of the palette of colors and form 2) the opportunity to capture a memorable photograph of your winged beauty.

When I give Powerpoint presentations, I’m always asked, How do you do it? Why don’t you use a long lens?  Don’t they fly away before you can photograph them? Below you’ll find a step by step guide.
