Macrophotography in the Butterfly Garden
July is the peak of the season in our beautiful, lively butterfly garden at the Minnesota Zoo. See and photograph gorgeous butterflies, moths, and wildflowers. Learn new macrophotography skills – and to identify new species – in this inviting and colorful space. Photograph the iridescent scaled wings of swallowtails and monarchs, and the brilliant petals of coneflowers. Bring any lenses you have for your camera, and a tripod if you have one – the instructor will also have some materials for people to try. Combine classroom time with time in the covered butterfly garden. With plenty of opportunities to ask questions and practice your new ideas, head home with skills for getting that perfect shot – and new information about these pollinators and the plants they love!
