There are a lot of butterfly pictures being posted on social media. Many of them are amazing.

Making your butterfly images or artwork interesting is the first step, and choosing the right hashtags is the only way to get your fantastic work in front of the eyes of people who might be very interested, but just didn’t know you were there in the over-crowded world of social media.

Hashtags come and go, but many of the most popular ones are more “evergreen”, in that people are regularly using them to describe certain types of photos or posts. A good example of evergreen hashtags are things like “nature”, “butterfly”, “garden” – as you’ll guess, these are very broad hashtags.



They’re still a great way to get your photos listed under particular topics, but if you want to have a higher chance of getting noticed you need to also niche down a little and try out hashtags that might not have such hot competition, while also avoiding those tags that nobody looks at. It’s all a balancing act and really all about trial and error – if you start posting on Instagram regularly you will soon get a feel for which hashtags are working well for you.

We’ve dug in to find out which butterfly-related hashtags are doing well on Instagram and Twitter right now. Use some or all of these tags to boost the reach of your beautiful butterfly photos, artwork or videos and, hopefully, enjoy the adoring comments and likes that will follow as you build up your following!

If you’re taking some close up macro shots, especially if they’re beautiful high quality, vibrant images then it’s well worth including a bunch of macro related hashtags. Even people who aren’t particularly interested in butterflies, but who love macro photos, will take notice of bright, well exposed macro photos of butterflies.

You can (and should) also consider targeting the more general “insect” related hashtags. This opens up a much more broad area and can get you noticed on some of the big pages and organizations like National Geographic and other nature, wildlife or environmental groups.

Finally, don’t forget to include hashtags related to your locality, including where you’ve taken the photo and any native plants that the butterfly might be using! This helps get your posts noticed by local media outlets, magazines and other groups that might want to share your images with their followers – giving you a huge boost.
