Hello Kim, you stand for many hours at a ravine, waiting to Morphos come up along the smal river. Equipment is; Canon 40D with Canon 300 mm L4, IS mounted, and Canon 1D mark III with Sigma 105 mm macro mounted. Focus method, auto helped with manual focusing. Fast shutter speeds with ISO 800.
See this page on Morphos, which you can see many flight shots, it takes practice and no luck: http://www.danske-natur.dk/bolivia106.htm

A week ago I bought a new Canon 100 mm macro with hyper images stabilization, I think it is really good for butterflies flight shots.
