...... The butterfly enclosure is just at the entrance of the Sanctuary which is not very large. Beyond the butterfly enclosure are the koi pond and reptile area. At 9:30am, I had no luck with any butterflies when I first got in to the butterfly enclosure. I went back to the butterfly enclosure for a second round of shooting at 10:50am. I think sometimes when you have no luck with the first round of shooting, you have to leave the place and come back for the second round shortly. Or maybe I was just not patience enough during the first round shooting the butterflies ! And perhaps a lesson in photography for me that one should not over expect great results in every photography outing; some days can be good and other days may not.
