Photographing Butterflies is a great way to gain some experience with your new DSLR or point & shoot and a great way to get some really cool images while you're learning.
Keep your ISO low, 100-200. I'd suggest if you are new to this use Av or Aperture priority on your camera, or the Flower setting.
I shot many of these shots at local botanic gardens, and some in my own back yard. The butterflies were in an enclosed pavilion and yes they were flitting and flying all around, but it takes alot of energy for a butterfly to fly, and when there are so many flowers, they just have to stop to get some nourishment.
Aperture really depends on two things:
Okay, so back to aperture. I'd start with something in the middle of the road, say f8 or f11. Check your results and move along from there. The key is setting the aperture to allow the user to focus on the butterfly, making it VERY sharp and the other areas blurred out to the point of not distracting from the image. Good Luck!
