  The popularity of butterfly houses at zoos has greatly increased the photographer's opportunities of capturing butterfly images.   However, capturing images without a flash unit is still challenging.  Many butterfly houses are positioned so that absolutely no natural sun light ever reaches the foliage inside the house.  This makes it difficult to expose and capture the vivid colors of the butterflies. Note the outline of the butterfly on the bottom of the leaf as a ray of sunlight lit up the butterfly.
