I have seen many nice pictures posted in the Macro and Close-up forum, especially those pictures with butterflies and dragonflies. However, these creatures are extremely tough to approach. How does the experts manage to approach these creatures close enough to get a shot?
This is what I have gathered:
Insects are cold blooded animals that relies on its surrounding to regulate its body temperature. As such, the best times to approach these creatures are during dawn and after rain, when the body temperature of the insects had dropped drastically and thus relatively inert to flight.
However, since the temperature in Singapore is so warm, does this work? Do the local experts take insect macrophotography during dawn and after rainfall? Please advice.
