The 105mm f/2.8G VR is a great lens for butterfly photography. With a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:1, it also offers adequate working distance - good for photographing small butterflies like Grass Jewel and Tiny Grass Blue.

Here is a small nature video made with this lens mounted on a D3300 body.
