Hello Bebey,
I don't have much experience capturing the motion of butterflies but I was able to catch a hummingbird with a 28/200 mm lense. One thing I would try to do is shot the picture with a lighter background. Then for butterflies, a tip would be to try to take pictures in the first hours of the day when they move slower (since they have cold blood) and you can start practicing from there. To have a lot of patience, when I got the hummingbird, I was by myself and stayed more than one hour in order to be able to get the shot.

I hope this helps in any way, regards, Iris
