DSLR Nature Video in HD: Great Spangled Fritillary butterfly

Here is some DSLR nature footage that I shot in the tail end of this summer in New Jersey.  This was one of my first times using a fluid head on a tripod, and I practiced smooth vertical and horizontal panning motions to avoid jitters in the video.  The YouTube video below is a splice of 3 separate angles of a Great Spangled Fritillary in butterfly, a species I consider one of our most regal flighty residents.

Please watch in 1080P for full resolution

Equipment used in filming and production: Tamron SP 90mm VC F/2.8 1:1 Macro Lens, Canon EOS 60D DSLR, Manfrotto 700RC2 Mini Video Fluid Head, Manfrotto 055x ProB Tripod.

The acoustic guitar is my Washburn D10 CE using mostly Major 7th chords.
